LOVELAND PASS, Colo. (CBS4) – A major cleanup effort is poised to get underway after a rock slide closed Loveland Pass Tuesday.

The slide happened at approximately 4 p.m. between Arapahoe Basin and Keystone Resort. No one was hurt.

The slide is approximately 7 feet deep and covers Highway 6. Rocks and mud came down along with the rocks.
