CAIC warns backcountry snow-sport enthusiasts of avalanche danger
The weekend weather forecast proved to be much more positive than the avalanche forecast. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center issued an avalanche advisory on Friday in several Colorado counties, warning that fresh snowfall and warm temperatures will create a considerable threat. The sunny and clear Saturday weather attracted many to the backcountry along Loveland Pass, but the risk of avalanches was on many people's minds.
