DURANGO, Colo. (CBS4) — Heavy snow in southwestern Colorado has created epic conditions at ski resorts like Wolf Creek, but it’s making walking and driving around towns like Durango difficult.

The Durango Herald reports that children in and around Durango got a second straight day off from school Friday because of the storm still hitting the area.

“Move to Durango they said. The winters are mild compared to Hoth they said,” Hank Blum joked on Twitter.

The snow was piled as high as the man’s shoulders in areas along the sidewalk.
