A 32-year-old skier was killed in an avalanche Sunday morning on Berthoud Pass.
Grand County Sheriff Rod Johnson said the skier was buried for about two hours.
Johnson said three skiers triggered the slide in the Mines Peak area, an area prone to avalanches. A second slide was triggered when rescuers approached, but no one was caught in it.
No names have been released.
