VAIL, Colo. -- Searchers have recovered the bodies of two men who died in a weekend avalanche in Colorado.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says three men were riding snowbikes late Saturday afternoon when they were caught in the slide about 10 miles north of Vail. One man was able to dig himself out and call for help. The other men were carried into a gully at the bottom of a drainage; avalanche debris puled up and they were fully buried.

The avalanche center reports the bodies were recovered on Sunday. Their names have not been released.
