No-one was reported injured as the huge snowstorm surged across the road in Ten Mile Canyon near Breckenridge.

On Sunday, another avalanche dumped snow across a section of Interstate 70, a highway that connects the Denver area to ski resorts, between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tim Schaefer told The Denver Post there were no injuries, and no cars buried as a result of the avalanche. Plz share and be safe out there! A handful of drivers in Colorado can confirm as much after an avalanche barreled across a roadway this weekend and instantly delivered a complete whiteout.

On Sunday afternoon, drivers were making their way through a Colorado mountain pass when it was suddenly engulfed by an avalanche. He says it was "exciting, but pretty nerve wracking".

Jacob Easton recorded it on video.

Colin Rafferty was with his daughter when an avalanche struck, CBS4 reported.

"First it was just a big cloud coming down the mountain, then it just turned totally white".

The spokesperson said it was a naturally occurring avalanche, not a controlled slide. It shows snow covering a pickup ahead of his vehicle before the snow sweeps down to his vehicle, completely covering the windshield.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Centre says the slide danger likely peaked yesterday but says the danger is still considered high today.
