Traversing Skiers Avoid Approaching Avalanche By The Skin Of Their Teeth

This is the time of year when you need to keep an eye on steep slopes that have been in the sun for a few hours and/or above freezing temperatures for a few hours. Like this South facing slope that naturally released from around 2500 m around 5pm yesterday April 7th 200 – 300 m up the road above the Fornet cable car in Val d’Isère and came across the Col d’Isèran road (approx 1900 m) that heads up to the Pont St Charles. It almost hit some people who were below it on a closed road/run. Thanks to Aaron Cassells for taking the vid and passing it on to us!
