The Colorado Avalanche Information Center warned there are some areas of Colorado with considerable avalanche danger. In videos posted to their Facebook page, forecasters demonstrated just how easily a weak layer of snow can create a thick slab ready to slide.

The videos on their Facebook page were made while surveying parts of Ptarmigan Pass near Vail and the Sawatch Range.
