    Yes, good thing everyone was okay. That person on the top of it could have easily experienced a "negative outcome."

    It looked like there were three people on the right as the avalanche came down, and only two got out of the way. I guess that third shape wasn't a person after all? I never saw it resurface, and I'm supposing we would have heard about it if someone had gotten injured...

    Thanks for posting that video.

    Brad also posted another link to a video of a smaller slide in the ravine the same day.

    He didn't even wait for the snow to stop sliding before crashing off the cliff.
