In Colorado, the person holding the will must lodge the will with the district court that covers the county where the decedent resided at the time of his death (or, in Denver County, with the probate court) within 10 days after the date of death or as soon after that as possible if the holder is not informed of the death until later. The person lodging the will does not necessarily have to start the probate proceeding, however. Once the will is lodged with the court, anyone may get a copy of it from the court because it is a public record.
Your sister is not the executor or administrator of the estate until probate is opened, though, and the court has appointed her as executor. Once appointed as executor or administrator, she has 30 days to provide notice to all heirs and beneficiaries that she has been appointed as the estate personal representative and must provide certain disclosures and information in that notice.
