Crazy avalanche/skiing video

Postby AndYouSeeMe » Fri Feb 15, 2013 12:53 pm

Stumbled across this in class just now. It's gets crazy around :55 in and right at the end it shows it in slow-mo. Must have been crazy seeing the avalanche while upside down!

Saw that one. Pretty cool. Great way to avoid an avalanche!



Here's another one. Wouldn't want to get caught in this. I don't think avalanche probes are made to get through rocks!



Here's a shot from a helicopter surveying the aftermath.

• It's by getting away from life that we can see it most clearly... It's by depriving ourselves of the myriad of everyday experiences that we renew our appreciation for them...I've learned from my experiences in the mountains that I love life. — Dave Johnston
• Mountains are not climbed merely to reach a geographical location — but as personal and spiritual challenges to the participants. — David Stein
• The best climber in the world is the one who’s having the most fun.— Alex Lowe
• Why do I climb the mountain? Because I'm in love! — The Captain
