Everybody is sick and tired of winter.  Hang on for a month and people will start breaking and buying stuff again.

Or just sick

Or just tired

Or, they live in Colorado and got buried by one of the 302 avalanches in the last week

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) warned of “historic avalanche danger” around the central mountains of Colorado following recent heavy snow.

The warning comes after yet another avalanche spilled snow onto I-70 early Thursday morning at Vail Pass. I-70 had been covered by multiple avalanches Sunday afternoon east of Copper Mountain.

 On Sunday alone, CAIC received reports of eight different slides near Aspen. In all, 14 slides were reported across Colorado Sunday.

Snowstorm creates 'historic' avalanche conditions in Colo. mountains; ski areas and highways closed
"Nobody alive has seen a week like this."

An avalanche that ruptured a natural gas line behind the Conoco station at Copper Mountain around 5 a.m., and several other avalanches led to the closure of I-70 in both directions between Copper Mountain and Vail. Copper Mountain Resort was on a delayed opening because of the road closures.

The ruptured gas line created a power outage at the Eisenhower Tunnel. CDOT crews were escorting 100 vehicles at a time through the tunnel in the morning hours.

CSP Trooper Gary Cutler told Denver7 that there was a natural slide at mile marker 19 on Highway 91 that trapped three or four cars. Cutler said the slide was 15 feet deep and 300 feet wide. Cutler said some occupants got out of their vehicles and called 911.
Greene said he could not estimate the number of slides that occurred Thursday because the weather was keeping observers and forecasters from being able to see all the avalanches. He said there was a report of a backcountry recreationalist involved in a slide near Jones Pass and that a search and rescue operation had been ordered.

Exceptional avalanche danger will continue this weekend as snow and high winds pound Colorado's mountains.

An avalanche warning is in effect for the Front Range, Vail and Summit County, Sawatch, Aspen, Gunnison and Grand Mesa zones through at least 8 a.m. Saturday. The warning means you shouldn't travel in those areas because natural avalanches are likely and human-caused avalanches are very likely.

Recent avalanches have run to valley floors and exceeded historic run-outs, and conditions remain "very dangerous," according to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

Vehicles buried in snow, highways shut down in Colorado during extreme avalanche conditions
Colorado is facing potentially historic avalanches, threatening to shut down major highways that pass through the Rocky Mountains and forcing some popular ski resorts to close their slopes.

An avalanche was reported on Highway 91 near Copper Mountain, Colorado, on Thursday afternoon with reports of multiple vehicles buried in snow. No injuries were reported.

This is just one of hundreds of avalanches reported across Colorado since the start of March.



Avalanche danger has been growing over the past several days with some avalanches disrupting travel along Interstate 70. This includes a slide that buried cars on the interstate on Sunday and forced the highway to be closed for several hours.

The extreme avalanche danger comes after two extended closures of I-70 over the past several days after the highway was covered by massive controlled avalanches near Vail Pass, Copper Mountain and Herman Gulch.
