Thanks to Grant Gunderson, Unofficial Networks readers get a look into what the fuss was all about this month in the North West. With Mount Bakers getting up to 110 inches in one week, and avalanche dangers being in the ‘black’ things we’re getting pretty crazy. Here are a few photos by Gunderson who had the chance to photograph some of the results of the Mount Baker Helicopter avalanche control.
Imagine the amount of snow that this avalanche would have carried down the hill. Luckily this was planned so there was no risk of having someone being caught in it. I sure wouldn’t feel comfortable standing where he is…
