I found this video on another website and thought I'd share for those that hadn't seen it. Very scary, esp. if you ever spend some time in avalanche territory.

Its good to see that website finally up and running. I remember last year the forecasts were just barely getting off the ground. It looks like the advisory is much more comprehensive as well.

Wow! At first I thought this was the slide on Mt Morrison. The skier looked back when he saw his friend (photographing) panicking, and was able to get out of the way.

We saw a lot of these in our Avy Course last year.

I seem to remember seeing that video on the Teton Gravity Research website.
