CODY, Wyo. - A major spring snow storm dumped more than three feet of snow and stranded travelers on Highway 296 near Cody in northwest Wyoming Monday.

According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation, dozens of people were caught in the storm that closed the highway northwest of Cody, between U.S. 212 and WY 120. A spokesperson for the department said vehicles, including a pickup pulling a camper trailer, were stuck and spun out on the highway Sunday night.

WYDOT crew members arrived late Monday morning with a loader to begin clearing a path for travelers to pass through.

The National Weather Service forecast the region to receive one to two feet of snow over the Memorial Day weekend.
