Avalanches down under.....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have had some heavy falls in some of the ski areas down under. They have had several close calls in a couple of ski areas but no one got caught, thank goodness.

Craigieburn got hit, they are a club field. They knew there were 68 people on the mountain and got everyone in the car park for a head count. Can you imagine trying to do that at Whistler? Imagine, a meter of powder, two basins and 68 people including staff!

I'll paste in some links to new articles, not sure how long they stay active. Could not find any with any decent photos though.
