Permanent Colorado Drought Claims Another Victim

Avalanche Warnings For Western Colorado

Officials said Monday a major snowstorm brought heavy snow last week, creating dangerous slabs of ice and snow that can easily trigger large, deep and dangerous avalanches.

On Saturday, there were at least five avalanches across the state, leaving one person dead.

Peter Carver, a 23-year-old Durango man, was killed and another man was injured when their backcountry skiing group was caught in an avalanche near Silverton.
