A rare and dreaded black danger rose was issued today by our Friends at the Colorado Avalanche Information Center for the San Juan mountains. After more than 50 inches of snow in 50 hours, the CAIC warns that “human and natural avalanches are certain.”
We’re definitely of two minds here. We love the idea of enormous avalanches plundering down steep mountainsides like a horde of angry white dragons unchecked and wild with blood lust. But that scares us just a little bit too.
