Ten vehicles got caught in what the Colorado Department of Transportation called a bank slide on Berthoud Pass Sunday. There were no injuries.
The slide occurred around 11:20 a.m. Crews were able to remove all the vehicles about an hour later.
CDOT closed US 40 after the slide and cautioned travelers to expect enforcement of slower speeds and safety closures throughout the day.

The new snowfall and strong winds have increased the chances of dangerous avalanches, according to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC).
