“We have been actively contacting all reservation holders during this closure and refunding charges or rescheduling visitors for a later date,” said Ken Murphy of H20 Ventures, which operates the reservation system for Hanging Lake.
The Colorado Department of Transportation said crews started removing mudslide material on Tuesday.
