Video captures huge avalanche covering interstate highway in Colorado

Drivers record avalanches barreling toward Colorado interstate

Avalanches rumbled down a mountainside in Colorado's Ten Mile Canyon on Sunday, enveloping in clouds of snow a major highway that leads to some of the region's most popular ski resorts.

Shaune Golemon was driving with his family in the eastbound lanes at about 5 p.m. when the slide came down and snow covered his auto.

Their windshield was covered with snow, but their vehicle was not trapped.

"The avalanche itself only deposited small amounts of debris in a creek away from the highway", a spokesman said.

"It hit the road".

No one was reportedly hurt in this incident.

But a spokesperson for Colorado Department of Transportation told Fox Denver not enough snow made it on to the road to impact drivers.

"All of a sudden, me and my dad just saw a big white cloud to the left of us and we instantly noticed the avalanche", Easton told KTLA sister station KDVR in Denver.

"Heavy Colorado snowfall over the weekend led to a risky situation for drivers", CBS4 reported. "It's exciting, but pretty nerve wracking, because you don't know when it's going to stop".

Jacob Easton was traveling through Ten Mile Canyon on Interstate 70 near Breckenridge when he captured the avalanche roaring down the mountain. Officials declared a high avalanche danger level and noted that the warning would remain until around 6 p.m. on Monday.
