Avalanche danger

The storm that is expected to bring up to a foot of snow in the high country through Sunday also may increase the likelihood of avalanches.

Officials said danger could increase as cold air moving in mixes with the warm air we've had in recent days. A slide on Highway 40 at Berthoud Pass closed the road for about an hour today.

Check the snow report in The Gazette's sports section or at Colorado Ski Country.
