KUSA - Interstate 70 has been packed with cars at times throughout Friday afternoon and into the evening.

Six to seven inches of fresh powder fell near Vail Friday morning and backed up traffic as truckers chained up.

The timing of the snow is good for international attention. The US Open Snowboard Championships are going on through Saturday.

In Breckenridge, they've had several more inches of snow Friday on top of a foot that fell over the last week.
