Avalanche warnings for western Colorado

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says the danger of snow slides continues to be high in western Colorado.

Backcountry travelers triggered several avalanches over the weekend around Red Mountain Pass, but no injuries were reported

Forecasters said Monday hikers and skiers could trigger large avalanches in Summit County, the Steamboat Springs area and the northern San Juan mountains. The most dangerous areas are near and above tree line.
