ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) - A recent snowstorm has put a damper on Trail Ridge Road being open for Memorial Day weekend.

The Reporter-Herald reported (https://bit.ly/2rWvD0F ) Thursday that last week’s snowstorm has filled Trail Ridge, the stretch of highway that traverses Rocky Mountain National Park, forcing park officials to close the path.

Crews are chipping away at 8 feet to 14 feet (2.44 meters to 4.27 meters) of snow on Trail Ridge, and extended forecasts call for continued snow, winds and temperatures in the 20s.

Park officials will continue to plow the road, but said it is uncertain when it will be clear and safe to re-open.
