Removing snow from the highest paved road in the United States

With snow removal crews getting ready to tackle Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park over the next couple of weeks, I thought I would highlight a couple of short videos that show how much snow accumulates over the winter, what the conditions are like, and how crews go about removing snow from the highest contiguous paved road in the United States.

Weather permitting, Trail Ridge Road is projected to reopen this year on May 24th.
