That was pretty sweet,actually. Dude tee'd it up,went large and stuck the landing like a champ. Then sets off a fairly large slide....Talk about "afterbang."

It's more that he sent it down at his group, and when they saw it they were like "huh, is that coming at us?".........it is a pretty cool video of a very large slide though.

In addition to knowing what you're doing in the BC and having respect for the snowpack, this video is very instructive about two other things:

1) After you ride a pitch, get to someplace safe while your buddies comes down behind you and,

2) just because someone's already been on the slope doesn't mean its safe - notice there were about a half dozen tracks in the general area where the boarder landed his jump and started the slide.

These guys were lucky to just get dusted by the cloud - I can't help but wonder if someone's beacon was inside the daypack on the snow...

Be safe out there, and remember: "In case of an avalanche, the best place to be is somewhere else."

Note to all:
If you are relying on MountainBuzz for avalanche info, you have no business in the backcountry.

Is it just me or did they wait an awful long time to clear out?

I think this is more of a discussion about current events than a place people would actually expect to gain "avalanche info"......
