Monday was not a good day to be driving in the mountains.  Numerous pileups in the high country caused problems for people heading home from the ski areas.

The adverse conditions temporarily closed westbound I-70 at Silverthorne and eastbound I-70 at Vail Pass. Westbound I-70 also was also closed briefly at Floyd Hill because of accidents.

Here's the 9 News coverage of the situation. In short: don't drive if you're in the mountains in a huge snow storm!
