TELLURIDE, Colo. (CBS4) - The winter storm that brought snow to Colorado's high country earlier this week left residents in several mountain communities excited. In what has been a very dry late 2021, places like Telluride cheered the arrival of a fresh blanket of snow.

"Hello Winter, so nice to see you again!" wrote the folks at Visit Telluride on their Facebook page on Tuesday.
