Photos From a Large Avalanche

A size 3.5 avalanche that came down today while we were checking nearby runs. The slide was triggered by a cornice fall off Mount MacCarthy  in East Creek.

For the second time this year, I've been fortunate to have my camera handy while a large natural avalanche let loose close by. This time, I was checking a run in East Creek called Unbelievable when a cornice fall triggered the monster. 

If you look really close, you might be able to see Andi K digging out a landing on the prominent moraine on the looker's right.

Beautiful from afar.

Can you spot the helicopter?

Probably a good time to stay away from overhead hazard.
