Rock and ice avalanche video from New Zealand

From the American Geophysical Union Landslide Blog.

Follow the link below for some spectacular footage of an avalanche and rockfall. What's also amazing is not just the size but also how far the runout went at the base of the mountain and how it flowed over very irregular terrain. I don't think a beeper, shovel, and BCA air bag would've been much good in this one...

Check it out here:

As the saying goes, "In case of an avalanche, the best place to be is somewhere else"

Be safe out there,


Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
