Avalanche, rockfall mitigation close several mountain highways for hours

Jacob Easton recorded the video about two miles before Copper Mountain. The footage shows the wave of snow completely whiting the section of highway, covering Golemon's vehicle in an instant.

An avalanche swept across a portion of Interstate 70 in Colorado on Sunday, briefly engulfing at least one vehicle and shoving several others across the highway.

"It's exciting, but pretty nerve wracking, because you don't know when it's going to stop", Easton told FOX31, recounting the unexpected hazard.

Officials with the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) tweeted the video, saying the highway was not affected by the avalanche.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

"It was not a controlled slide".

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) says that while the avalanche got close to I-70, there was not enough snow on the road to impact travel.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tim Schaefer told The Denver Post there were no injuries, and no cars buried as a result of the avalanche.

Three mountain pass roads in southwestern Colorado - Wolf Creek, Red Mountain and Lizard Head - were temporarily closed so crews could trigger avalanches and avoid natural slides.
