Video captures avalanche covering highway with snow in Colorado

Motorist on I-70 in Colorado captures an avalanche coming down with smartphone camera

"Then it covered our windshield with a couple of inches of snow, so the windshield wipers wouldn't even move it".

Crews on Monday recovered the body of a missing backcountry skier who apparently died in an avalanche in southwestern Colorado as the danger level remained elevated following heavy snow over the weekend.

The second happened Sunday afternoon a few miles away near Copper Mountain. "It's exciting, but pretty nerve-wracking because you don't know when it's going to stop".

Summit County Sheriff Department deputies closed Interstate 70 in Colorado after an avalanche blocked the road and buried cars.

A motorist captured video of an avalanche coming down near I-70 in Colorado Sunday.

The original video was posted to Twitter by Brandan Clark.

Despite those comments UEFA opened an investigation into the incident the following day and have now made a decision to take disciplinary action.

"A potent winter storm caused avalanche danger to rise yesterday and very risky conditions persist today ... avalanches will be very easy to trigger, and some avalanches may release naturally", the center said.

Later in the day, another avalanche swept through a stretch of the same highway in nearby Summit County.

"Large avalanches can release naturally and run long distances", the agency said.

The two avalanches did close part of I-70, but officials say the highway did not suffer significant damage.

The Colorado State Patrol told FOX31 that no one was injured in that incident, and no cars ended up trapped.
