Clear Creek County Sheriff Don Krueger told Reuters that the snowboarders apparently triggered the avalanche at the 11,990-foot (3,651-meter) pass about 75 miles (121 km) west of Denver.
The avalanche occurred at about 1 p.m. (1900 GMT) just above the Loveland Ski Area, he said. The bodies are being recovered.
