NEVADA (KTNV)  — Roads are back open Christmas night on Mount Charleston after crews had to close Deer Creek Highway earlier in the day due to traffic.

Officials said the closure was because too many people were making their way to the mountain, while other main roads in the area remained open through the day.

The Nevada Highway Patrol also has chain enforcement in place for the area as possible snow flurries remain in the after Christmas forecast for the mountains.
