DENVER (AP) - Avalanche warnings and advisories are posted for much of Colorado’s high country because of storms bringing heavy snow to parts of the mountains.

The warnings and advisories are in effect through Saturday due to high winds and heavy snowfall.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says that large and dangerous natural and human-triggered avalanches will be likely in steep terrain.

Strong winds are expected heighten the slide danger. The center warned against backcountry skiing and travel.

Crews have been conducting avalanche mitigation after several large avalanches were reported this week after a large storm dumped more than 2 feet of snow on a weak snowpack.
