This is the area where 5 people were killed in a large slab avalanche in Colorado yesterday. Blessings to their families and friends.
The same trough that passed through Colorado last week and produced tornadoes, also produced a mountain blizzard that dumped three feet of wet snow over crusty and icy old layers, with gale force winds and many additional feet of snow loading on leeward back country slopes, conditions presented a very dangerous slab avalanche risk.
