Avalanche on Berthoud Pass: 7 rescued, highway closed

We have more information on the huge slide on Berthoud Pass. It let loose at 10:30 a.m. on the pass's largest, most infamous slide path, Stanley. Stanley Mountain, where the slide started, is pictured above, with the old Berthoud Ski Area in the foreground. To view Stanley on a map with other regular slide paths in the area, click here.
Seven people were rescued from cars enveloped when the slide crossed the road in two places.
