Have you guys seen this video?
(I don’t know any of the people in it, just stumbled across it).
Normally the only avalanche video’s I enjoy are ones with people digging snow pits… but for some reason the fact that this one has both perspectives (from the buried & coming up behind) makes it sort of unique.

I believe we watched this one happen from the lift. It’s a one-turner into a terrain trap that slides regularly and there were many, obvious, natural releases that day on similar elevations/aspects, so we chose not to ride the backcountry… plus inbounds was good. As he dropped, we all voiced that we thought it was going to slide. Questionable decisions…February 15, 2012 at 1:57 am #651732Archie McPheeParticipant
Can you say where this occurred? It was just out of bounds?

This is just out the Elbow, directly across from Chair 8. I was actually above this when it happened, I believe, at the very top of the run (hemispheres, top hump). There were many natural releases that day, as well as many more caused by skiers/snowboarders. We chose a much safer descent line, this is an obvious terrain trap that always slides. That is one area I avoid if there are pretty much any avalanche activity. This day is one I never would have ridden that face on.
This spot is about 100 yards or so out of bounds.
