Video catches avalanche ripping through Ten Mile Canyon near Interstate 70

This is the third reported avalanche on I-70 Sunday.

A driver traveling through Interstate 70 on Sunday captured the moment an avalanche came barreling down through Ten Mile Canyon between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

His Facebook video shows a plume of snow covering the highway heading towards nearby Copper Mountain.

The video has had hundreds of thousands of views since it was shared by Fox 13's sister station in Denver, KDVR. The Colorado Department of Transportation road conditions website says to "expect long delays" due to the avalanche.

However, Clark will have the pressure of a final round to overcome along with a tour veteran trailing closely behind. Strangely, you could double Clark's age and he would still be six years younger than the 56-year-old Singh.

The spokesperson said it was a naturally occurring avalanche, not a controlled slide.

The heavy snowfall prompted the Colorado Avalanche Information Center to issue an avalanche warning for the northern and central mountains effective into Monday morning.

"The avalanche itself only deposited small amounts of debris in a creek away from the highway", a spokesman said.
CSP said there are reports of people being trapped in the avalanche.
