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.
    It has been crazy in the mountains - frequent snow that us light and fluffy. Most of the winter the winds have been clearing snow but over the past two weeks the winds were not that crazy. Snow banks on the way to Breck are taller that the vehicles.

    All the while the front range has been relatively dry with little snow. With the sun being so strong it melts fast. Funny thing, we have relatives and friends who call us all concerned.
