Two passes between Durango and Silverton have received more snow this month than any other January since at least 1993, when records began.
27 Jan 2017 – Coal Bank Pass has received 151½ inches (384 cm) of snow so far this month, far surpassing its previous record of 136 inches (345 cm).
Molas Pass has received 145 inches (368 cm) this month, compared with its previous record of 142 inches (361 cm).
On Red Mountain Pass, which received about 18 inches (45 cm) of snow during a three-day storm earlier this week, conditions were so dangerous and visibility so poor that avalanche-control crews were unable to work until Wednesday.
