Avalanche on Mont Maudit

by AndySay » Thu Jul 12, 2012 11:55 am

Reports are just starting to come through of a major avalanche on Mont Maudit this morning at around 5.30. Party of over twenty hit by a major slide. Six reported dead, eight injured and early reports suggested two might still be missing.

Bad news. It has, apparently been pretty warm out there of late.
