3 stars ?

The man just fell a thousand feet down the mountain and he only gets 3 stars on his photos! Give him a break!

Now that is something I hope to never see.

Wow, that was a heart-pounding trip report! You are one lucky dude. Also skilled and well-prepared, but lucky!

If you set this avalanche off wouldn't you of been buried in it? I'm confused.

I think that that's the idea behind the picture. A few weeks ago this story was in the news from California to the UK--it was a very significant event. Go to the Mt. Nebo page and read his excellent Trip Report, it will explain better than I ever could.

Re: wheres the avalanche come in?

Technically, the 30ft X 6f tX ? cornice that broke off beneath me set it off, and I just happened to ride down behind it, catching up to the derbis as it slowed down. More details in my TR of the incident.



Last I heard, the AP article of the incident made it to India and Australia!
