Critical avalanche conditions expected to last through MLK weekend in Colorado


Dangerous avalanche conditions are expected to last through the Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, according to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

The warning comes as four people already have been killed in avalanches in Colorado since Dec. 26, a center news release stated.

“We have seen more avalanches this year than we do on a typical year, and recently they’ve gotten much bigger,” Ethan Greene, director of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center stated in the release. “We want everyone to enjoy the wonderful public lands in Colorado, and go home alive and well to their family and friends on Monday.”
