Drivers capture avalanche tearing down side of Colorado mountain

Drivers going down a Colorado highway had quite the close call, after an avalanche ripped down the side of a mountain in front of them.

On Sunday afternoon, said avalanche moved down through Ten Mile Canyon, located between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

There were several videos of the incident posted online, capturing the snow piling down toward the road.

Another video posted by Brandon Ciullo on Facebook shows the hazy aftermath of the avalanche, which brought traffic to a halt.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tim Schaefer told The Denver Post there were no injuries, and no cars buried as a result of the avalanche. 

“It was more than a dusting of snow. There was also tree debris on the road,” he told the newspaper. 

The highway was temporarily closed as emergency services worked to clear the snow debris off the road. It was reopened later that evening.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center issued an avalanche warning until Monday morning, noting conditions are “very dangerous due to large amounts of snowfall and strong westerly winds.”
