I-70 is closed near Vail because of a 40-car pile-up in near-white-out conditions.
At least six people were injured, one seriously, in the series of crashes.
A bus has been sent from Vail to pick-up 25-35 drivers because their vehicles are so badly damaged that they're not drivable.
Traffic is being routed to Highway 6 at Newcastle. Delays of several hours expected.
The chain law is also in effect on Monarch Pass due to heavy snow.
