Chinook, Cayuse passes close for winter

MOUNTAIN PASSES -- The state Transportation Department has closed Chinook and Cayuse passes for the winter because of avalanche danger.

The department says strong winds drifted snow Monday across both Highway 410 and Highway 123 on the east side of Mount Rainier. Access to the Crystal Mountain Ski Resort on Highway 410 remains open.

Chinook and Cayuse typically close in November for the winter.
