DENVER (AP) - A winter storm is pounding parts of Colorado, dumping near 2 feet of heavy snow, hampering travel and causing power outages.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for northern and western Colorado, including much of the Denver area where power outages were reported Thursday night. About 2 feet of snow is possible in parts of the mountains, and 10 inches in Denver.

Preliminary snowfall reports Thursday evening included 21 inches near Breckenridge, 19 near Dillon, 18.5 near Fraser and 16 near Frisco.

The Colorado Department of Transportation closed the Loveland and Berthoud passes and reported slick road conditions in many areas, including along Interstate 70.

Nearly 170 flights at Denver International Airport were canceled Thursday. Most of the cancellations involved flights to mountain towns.
