ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (CBS4)– Crews continue to face a big challenge from Mother Nature when it comes to clearing snow from Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Recent storms that have brought heavy rain and snow to Colorado’s higher elevations along the Front Range have kept Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park closed.

Trail Ridge Road historically opens on Memorial Day weekend. The road opened last year on May 24.

This year, the road will open once it is deemed safe for travelers.

Crews did make it to the Alpine Visitor Center where the snow measures higher than the snow removal equipment.
