On Sunday in the Gore mountain range in the Vail and Summit County backcountry zone, a skier triggered a dangerous avalanche slide that could have cost them their lives.

Even though the avalanche warning in the area was rated a 1 out of 5, it seems the danger is still there regardless. For more information read here.
