Scary Avalanche on mont Vallon
Russian skier buried by a guy skiing in from above and cutting across. This slope had been skied but in the end it was a question of load and perhaps slow structural failure due to shear propogation. The skier in the bottom left of the start has still not been found and the search has been called off. I have skied this area with family but in much safer conditions.
