Avalanche Kills 2 Skiers in Colorado

Posted: Updated:

 

A massive avalanche killed two skiers in the State of Colorado and injured at least three others this weekend.
 
The incident happened Saturday about 80 miles north of Denver

Search and rescue teams found the bodies of two skiers on a mountain. Three other people suffered broken bones, and one person sustained a collapsed lung.

Officials say an avalanche is to blame for the tragedy, as two weeks of heavy snow created dangerous conditions on the state's mountains.
