Two Recent Colorado Avalanche Accidents
Two recent avalanche accidents in Colorado, the first southwest of Marble and second near Aspen Highlands Ski Resort, have driven the number of fatalities in Colorado to 9 for the 2022-23 season and the number of total U.S. fatalities to 19.
While some riders have been moving into steeper terrain of late in Colorado without incident, these two accidents highlight that the possibility of triggering a large avalanche still exists. The mountains of central and southern Colorado are currently under an avalanche watch, with high avalanche danger forecasted for later this week.
