Colorado highway drivers had quite the close shave when an avalanche ripped down the side of a mountain right in front of their eyes.
Last Sunday the avalanche crashed through Ten Mile Canyon. That area lies between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

One video posted by Brandon Ciullo on Facebook allows us to see the aftermath of the avalanche, which brought traffic to a standstill:
According to The Denver Post, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tim Schaefer said there were no injuries, and no cars buried as a result of the avalanche. He told the newspaper. “It was more than a dusting of snow. There was also tree debris on the road.”
