Thanks, when y'all watch it you realize nothing like this circumstance and emotion has ever been video'd before.

The YouTube counter was only ~80 views when I linked it. It was probably just someone random like me (not a lawyer or media pro) who first emailed the stranger/snowboarder "Hey, delete this for 20 minutes and ponder how unique and powerful this media you created is."

Skied today with MPB. I shot these from the top of 3 as a Patroller was ski cutting it again. Nothing left to slide...it's stripped down to the rocks. Really amazing to view in person!

Hopefully KOLO Reno News will have that avy video on their station at 11:00 p.m.

I think it's way way way more likely that the owner of the video was contacted by a media outlet and was offered one payment to let them broadcast it and a much larger payment to sign over the exclusive rights. Good for her!


We have a winner! Just watched the 11pm cbs news and the lead story was a video of a 12 year old girl with helmet cam footage of the avi. Don't know if that was the video link you posted since it is down now but I can only assume it is the one removed.

At the end of the clip the news claims 2 people died in avalanches at Tahoe and China peak.
I heard or read nothing about that anywhere else, I think they got their stories mixed up.
There was a deep powder death at both Tahoe and China Peak this weekend but they were not the result of an avalanche.
Also heard to two deaths at Mt. Bachelor.

Also in the interview she said that folks from the resort used her video to help them learn more about what happened that day.

Thanks for posting the Mammoth avalanche video and news clip. That little girl was lucky!

ST, I heard that story of the woman and her son getting killed by a roof snow cornice yesterday at Kirkwood. Just another thing to be mindful of when walking, playing or parking under snow overhangs.

That GoPro footage was pretty sweet, awesome to have that evidence. But I wouldn't really say she was caught in an avalanche, more like the powder cloud, still terrifying.

Found this 11x14" photo at our late friend Rick's condo while clearing it out to sell. It's of the 2006 Mammoth Mountain avalanche showing the probe lines that day. I remember it well.

I can't seem to find the exact date of the April 2006 avalanche. Every news site I found was dated 4/18/06 which said the avalanche happened "on Monday". I dislike it when news sources don't print dates. If anyone else has time to research the exact date I would appreciate having it. We're going to use this photo at the Mammoth Museum this summer as an exhibit, along with photos of last Saturday's avalanche as a comparison. Thanks!

This website says "...Monday, April 17..."

Somewhere on my backup drive I preserved the entire Avalance thread in a PDF.
