Colorado's snow amount has steadily risen, and along with it, the amount avalanches we've seen throughout the year.

This has raised a lot of concern for Colorado residents. The danger with avalanches isn't just the snow fall, it's also the mess left afterwards (i.e. flooding, pass closures, etc.).

Just last week, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) recorded 185 avalanches, of which 75 were big enough to bury a person, according to CBS Denver.

The CAIC expects an increase in activity when Colorado receives more snow this week.
