DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT — Colorado winter storm on Thursday, covering areas already buried with as much as 3 to 4 feet, closing schools and businesses and delaying DIA flights. Airlines canceled hundreds of flights because of drifting snow and high winds. Up to 12" to 14" of snow was expected at Denver International Airport by Thursday afternoon. Frontier Airlines at DIA said it canceled 19 flights in and out of Denver because the airport had been unable to keep enough runways and taxiways open. The airline also said some flights were delayed by up to four hours."We're at the mercy of airport conditions at DIA this today and hope they can recover to help us avoid further flight cancellations today. United Airlines, the dominant carrier at the Denver airport with about 400 flights per day, canceled about half its flights, United Airline said "We're doing everything we can to accommodate the travelers and we're also asking them to check online for their flights," for cancelations.


DENVER D.O.T. -Roads across Colorado Are snow packed and icy, with the snow not likely to stop anytime soon. "There is definitely some adverse driving conditions right now, and it's expected to continue throughout a good portion of Thursday," said Bob Wilson, a Colorado Department of Transportation spokesman. Wilson said although some cars are sliding off roads, not many accidents had been reported.
Colorado U.S. Highway 6 is closed to Loveland Pass, while a 35-mile span of Interstate I-25 is closed from Wellington to Cheyenne. Wilson said the closure is to prevent traffic congestion going into Wyoming, where driving conditions are worse than in northern Colorado. Blowing snow and poor visibility also prompted the closure of I-70 between the eastern edge of Denver to Limon.
A 40-mile stretch of Interstate 80 is closed from Cheyenne to Laramie.
DENVER AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION - is slow and on stand by notice, only pre reservation are continuing at this time. New reservation for Friday and Saturday for cancelled flights out of DIA are being excepted on a first come first served basis Thank You Colorado Airport Transportation.
