One skier killed, another injured in Colorado avalanche

DENVER - A back-country skier was killed and another critically injured in a weekend avalanche they apparently triggered on a northern Colorado mountain pass, a day after three other people died in snowslides across the country, authorities said on Sunday.
The two men in Colorado were cross-country skiing Saturday on the western side of Cameron Pass, about 135 miles (217 km)northwest of Denver, when they were buried in the avalanche, said Kent Minor, manager of State Forest State Park.
