Holy SH#T, these guys are really lucky! I’m guessing the slide was large enough to be a class two avalanche, it had a pretty big powder cloud and came rocketing down that chute. The snowpack in the Rocks sucks so everyone be careful outside your resort. If you haven’t already taken and Avi course please do! It can save your life. Even if you have, go out and practice. Hide a beacon and the first person to find it gets beers. Make fun games, and practice practice practive because you never know when a slide can come ripping down a chute and bite you in the ass…

That’s the type of thing that can jump out and bite you. “Oh Yes, sir. Bit me directly in the but-tocks” (Forrest Gump).
