Residents in Colorado are digging out from a fierce early-autumn storm that brought up to 30 inches of snow to parts of the state and left at least three people dead. One Colorado resident said he felt like he was in Siberia, but one group is cheering the early snow: the state's ski resorts.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

It's still early fall, but you can't tell that by the weather in Colorado. People there are digging out from a fierce storm that brought up to 30 inches of snow to parts of the state and left at least three people dead. One Colorado resident said he felt like he was in Siberia. Traffic is again flowing along the main route across the state which was closed by the storm. Crews hope to have power fully restored today. One group is cheering the early snow, Colorado's ski resorts.
