IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (STORYFUL) -- Sean Gaubatz was skiing near Saint Mary’s Glacier in Idaho Springs, Colorado, on April 11 when he saw a snow devil stir up.

Snow devils, though rare, can occur when the air above snowy ground is cooler than the surface below. The rising air can create the rotation effect seen in this video.
