    Default Really impressive videos on I-70

    FRISCO, Colo. -- An avalanche rolling through Ten Mile Canyon at Interstate 70 was captured on camera Sunday.

    A plume of snow can be seen covering the highway between Frisco and Copper Mountain.

    "It was not a controlled slide. It was a natural avalanche," a spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Transportation said.

    Default Scary, but...

    Perhaps even worse than watching the snow come down was watching people backing up in Interstate travel lanes. Do not try that at home!

    Default Being rear-ended would have been worse!

    Yes, I agree -- backing up on snowy Interstate Highway = recipe for a bad crash

    I-70 is now closed between Vail and Georgetown due to avalanches.
