    It was puking snow yesterday - we could hear blasting all around Breck. Thankfully we were Ble to go the back way to Colorado Springs.

    Just the snow cloud hit highway. Avy did not run into highway. This was a natural.

    The thought of an avi crossed my mind a few years ago when 70 was stopped dead at the Vail Pass and we just sat in our cars for a few hours waiting..

    Fake news. The avalanche did not hit I-70. These videos just show the powder "debris" cloud from an avalanche that stopped short of the interstate.

    I believe both videos are the same avalanche from different directions.

    The avalanche in the OP did not cover I-70. The day after, CDOT triggered one east of Copper that ended up larger than expected and did cover both the east and westbound lanes. Two days later (I think), a natural avalanche covered I-70 near Copper, followed by a triggered one in Vail Pass that covered the road again. Also in the area, CO 24 south of Copper was covered by a natural avalanche yesterday in an area that had never slid before, and A-Basin finally got one of their slide paths on US 6 to come down after two days of trying, which thoroughly covered the road. There have been an incredible number of slides this week in Colorado, including an inbounds one at Breck today.
