Great footage...and identical (less the female avalanche team members) to the 2nd "chapter" of the 2000 Warren Miller film "RIDE". Almost everything minus the Steamboat gondola and the women talking was filmed @ Whistler/Blackcomb, BC. You can see the difference in the ski-patrollers' coats. Steamboat Avy Team sports black and red coats, while the "additional" footage from RIDE has the "Dawn Patrol" in solid red coats.
I looked for the credits on the msn and Weather Channel websites to see if the Weather Channel correctly cited their video, but couldn't find anything. The first two clips ( http://epic.weather.com/ ) look like complete Steamboat coverage.
BTW...can you tell that there is no snow here, either? ...which is why I know way too much about WM videos! Gotta get your stoke somewhere.
