LAKE COUNTY, CO (CNN) - Two skiers missing in an avalanche southeast of Denver were found dead on Sunday.

Rescue teams are working to bring the bodies down the mountain.

The two skiers were part of a group of seven who were caught in the slide.

Saturday's avalanche is the latest in a string of deadly snow slides. Six people were killed last week - two each in Colorado, Utah and Oregon.

A record amount of snow and changing wind patterns have created unstable conditions on the mountains.
