On Sunday afternoon, said avalanche moved down through Ten Mile Canyon, located between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

There were several videos of the incident posted online, capturing the snow piling down toward the road.

An avalanche, likely triggered by an earthquake, has buried a hotel in the Italian region of Abruzzo, leaving at least 30 people missing.
