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

The Denver Post reported that the avalanche occurred at about 5 p.m.as skiers were commuting home from the slopes in Summit County, between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

Heavy snow from several avalanches barreled down a Colorado mountain, burying cars and leaving people stranded on a highway.

Heavy Colorado snowfall over the weekend led to a risky situation for drivers on Interstate 70 on Sunday.

Drivers going down a Colorado highway had quite the close call, after an avalanche ripped down the side of a mountain in front of them.

During the video, Mr Easton stops the auto as he drives towards the snow while it gathers speed. No injuries were reported, but the road had to be completely shutdown, KCNC-TV in Denver reported.

"First it was just a big cloud coming down the mountain, then it just turned totally white. It was a natural avalanche", a spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Transportation said of Sunday's avalanche.

Yesterday, an avalanche dumped snow across a section of Interstate 70, covering some vehicles in snow.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Centre says the slide danger likely peaked yesterday but says the danger is still considered high today.
