BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - The roof of a hotel conference room in Breckenridge collapsed under the weight of all the heavy, wet snow that’s been falling in Colorado’s mountains.

No one was inside the room at the time of the collapse Wednesday night but police say people staying in the 70 rooms at the Village of Breckenridge were evacuated as a precaution and put in other accommodations.

The ski resort town has received about 4 feet of snow in the last week from the fire hose of Pacific moisture that’s been steadily streaming into the state.

Even more snow has fallen in Crested Butte, forcing people to shovel their roofs as well as their walkways.
