In fact, the conditions were so cold and snowy, that fire crews took advantage of the time to update their GPS data and plan for the transition to a new incident management team.

There is also good news for Pingree Park. Colorado State University’s Mountain Campus received a good blanket of snow which helps firefighting efforts in that area.
