FRISCO, Colo. (KKTV) - Experts are expecting more avalanches in Colorado's high country this weekend as more winter storms head our way.
Colorado's Avalanche Information Center tells 11 News they have not yet added up the exact number of avalanches this week, but they are calling it "historic."
"We saw avalanches running larger than we have in 20 or 30, and in some cases maybe even 50 or even 100 years," said Spencer Logan, an avalanche forecaster with CAIC.
On Thursday, a massive snow slide on Highway 91 buried four cars, including the Reyes family.
"I thought we were going to die," Sergio Reyes said.
The Reyeses say the force of the avalanche busted their back window and engulfed their car. Snow came pouring into the backseat and buried their 2-year-old daughter Vanessa.
"The back of the seat was full of snow. He couldn't see her at all so he was digging and digging. I was panicking because I couldn't take my seat belt off," Karla Reyes said. "We were scared no one would hear us yell or scream, because we were screaming."
CBS News reports a state trooper came to help and pulled the family out.
