State officials say more than 3 feet of new snow that's fallen in the high country has increased the probability of large avalanches.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says the storm that moved across the state on Friday and Saturday fell on weak layers of snow. Human-triggered slides would break down into the deep layers, producing large avalanches with significant consequences.

The avalanche danger Sunday remains considerable in the mountains from Steamboat Springs in northern Colorado south to Pikes Peak, and includes the Vail, Aspen and Gunnison areas.
