The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Tuesday morning's squall dusted the top of the famed peak, which sits just above 14,000 feet.

Pikes Peak Highway Ranger Brenda Wilson told the newspaper that the road was promptly plowed, but some tourists had to wait until the road was cleared so they could drive down. Another snow squall hit at about 12:30 p.m.

The ranger said that flakes from Tuesday's blizzard melted, but that snow may stick to the highway and exposed rocky summit overnight.
