SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Snow had been falling all day Monday on Vail Pass but there was very little accumulation.

The snow started falling in Summit County Monday morning, but the warm weather from the weekend prevented much of it from sticking to the ground.

The classic up-sloping storm had quite an impact in the foothills. Snow did pile up in some locations to around 1 1/2 feet. But the Colorado Department of Transportation didn’t require chains or report any other highway issues.

In the Roaring Fork Valley from Carbondale to almost Vail there was steady rain, which turned into snow around the 9,000 foot mark.
