An early season snow storm, followed by gusty wind conditions, have forced the state Transportation Department to close Chinook and Cayuse passes for the winter because of avalanche danger.

The department says strong winds drifted snow today across both state routes 410 and 123 on the east side of Mount Rainier National Park.

Access to the Crystal Mountain Ski Resort off state Route 410 remains open.

Chinook and Cayuse typically close in November for the winter.
