Skiers Lucky To Avoid Massive Cornice Collapse In Alaska

By

“I was walking down the backside of this face to get on the other side of this ridge and felt the earth shake under my feet and I knew the cornice collapsed.”

Absolutely terrifying cornice collapse documented by the boys at Mystery Ranch Outdoor Gear during a ski trip up to Alaska. The collapse was triggered by walking along a ridge and the whole mountainside ripped out. As you can see there were multiple lines down the face before it gave way. Crazy to find the cornice the size of a small school bus intact in the debris field. If the video doesn’t automatically skip to the slide go to @9:45.
