JP Auclair – Avalanche

[iDevice Link] <— 0 views. After consulting with JP Auclair on the soon to be released Alpine Initiatives website – I began sorting through the masses of media we used to share back and forth.

This video amazed me back in 2005 and it still amazes me today. Shot in April, 2005 while skiing little goat in Haines Alaska. After I acknowledge he could be dead, JP recalls…

“hmm.. hard to say.. Seth was on top behing me.. so I’m sure he would have got to me in time.”

Even with someone like Seth Morrison who is exceptionally talented in the backcountry, I don’t think I would like to get caught in an avalanche.

A Perfect Disaster – Holy Scary Wow!

This is NOT a small slide (avalanche).

If you can sit through the 7 minutes of absolute terror – just think about how positively ridiculously s c a r y this would be to get trapped in – wow.

“This is simply a very sobering and unbelievable video. However, you should take away from this video all the positive things that you can learn from it.”

Get the full story.

Thanks to Freeskier for bringing this to my attention.
