Title: Historic avalanches in the northern front range and the central and northern mountains of Colorado

Author: Martinelli, M. Jr.; Leaf, Charles F.;

Date: 1999

Description: Newspaper accounts of avalanche accidents from the 1860s through 1950 have been compiled, summarized, and discussed. Many of the avalanches that caused fatalities came down rather small, innocuous-looking paths. Land use planners can use historical avalanche information as a reminder of the power of snow avalanches and to assure rational development in the future.

Keywords: avalanches, avalanche accidents, avalanche damage, avalanche fatalities, snowslides
