DENVER (CBS4) – Highway 6 reopened Thursday morning after it was closed Wednesday night after a snow slide on the east side of Loveland Pass.

Crews from CDOT had to wait for Thursday’s sunrise to perform avalanche mitigation work along the highway.

Avalanche danger ranges from moderate to considerable across most of Colorado’s high country.
