COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (CBS4) – The winds in the high country didn’t seem as bad as predicted on Wednesday, but some skiers from Alabama told CBS4 the forecast kept a lot of them from hitting the slopes.

It was gusty around Summit County. The gondola was put to rest late in the morning at Keystone and the skiers said it was very windy at the peak.

They also closed a few lifts that reached the peak at Copper Mountain because of wind gusts. Some were clocked above 60 miles per hour.

It stayed gusty most of the afternoon, but sustained winds haven’t been too strong.

Late Wednesday afternoon most people in the high country were just waiting for the blizzard that was predicted to blow in .
