The snowy weather is keeping ski areas busy so far this season. National Weather Service meteorologist Jeremiah Pyle says, there's more to come.
"It looks like the snow pattern for the mountains will continue. So we're expecting quite a bit more this weekend and then we've got several systems coming through next week that look like they bring substantial snow to the mountains as well,” said Pyle.
While that’s good news for resorts, Pyle says all that snow could prove to be an impediment for motorists driving over mountain passes.
Travelers in the mountains are advised to carry chains, warm clothes, blankets and extra food and water.
