Avalanche from the past

All my picts from skiing yesterday look like crap so I think it’s time to appreciate some fascinating avalanche pictures from the past.

Bob Athey wins the "best photo of the Gobblers Knob Avalanche" with this one from March 14th, 2007

Exactly 3 years ago I happened to be the first to arrive at Gobblers Knob after a humongous avalanche had scoured it’s north-west face. It’s still the most impressive avalanche I’ve ever seen. Since Gobblers Knob has been in the news again this year, I thought this might be a great time to take a photographic walk down memory lane by sharing three different looks at this awesome 2007 event.
