I have just found out I will be teaching level one avalanche clases this year at the hill I patrol at ( snow summit , Big Bear CA) and I have to put together a power point presentation. My avy 1 was a bore so I want to use as many real photos/ videos I can find . If anyone has good photos or videos of avalanches or you have survived one I would appreciate your input. I would love to have the clip of BCR at conness last june. Guest speakers are also welcome , I can offer lift tickets to a small crowded hill and a room in a condo for the weekend. It is close to San Gorgonio

Here's a source for stock avalanche video. I'm sure you're not looking to buy, but the samples are fun to watch...

I have some pics and other material that I have and will be using for an Avy I class I am teaching in January that I would be happy to share. Many of them are from other NSP Avy instructors so you would need to include a reference in your presentation. PM me and we can iron out the details.

A big Sierra spring slab slide on Dunderberg from sometime in May 2005.

The lowest skier on the ridge started a small surface slide (trigger point was just above the rockband below him). Small slide ripped down to much deeper layers (and ultimately the ground) as it gained momentum:

Resulting slide path from above (with 3rd ski partner and dog indicated). Less than 30 seconds after it cut loose:

View of "Climax" crown from the side. You can see the initial smaller crowns above.

Crowns from Below:

Debris Pile and Slide Path from Below:

Fortunately no one took a ride or was T-boned by this one!

Wow, great response guys THANKS . As Im putting Info together I came across the National Avalanche Centers Education site. Best Avalanche training on the web I have seen. If you dont have the time or money to take an Avy course, go here

http://www.avalanche.org/~nac/

This is a great step by step on-line Avy course

I have some great pictures of some guys roped in kicking cornesses and how they triggered a point release slide that released a good twenty feet from where the cornice landed. I think this is super informative on how kicking cornices can be very effective way of getting an idea of the stability and how sensitive avalanches can be and that they can be triggered from below, and to the side as well as above. However I don't know how to download my pictures to this site can anyone help?
