Colorado Avalanche Information Center Director Discusses Deadly Year
This winter has been one of the worst on record for deaths caused by avalanches. Eight people in Colorado have lost their lives. And the problem isn't limited to this state. In early February, there were more people killed nationwide by snowslides in seven days than in any single week in the past century.
