I have a friend who is working in Panorama this winter, he was riding the exact same area 40 minutes before this happened, emailed me today pretty shaken up and counting his blessings he wasnt caught up in it.

It happened in an out of bounds area called Jesse's monster which is beside the Taynton Bowl.

Yeah this just makes me want to obey the signs even more! I saw the aftermath of a large avalanche in the Cedar bowl in Fernie, and I'm glad that they control things as well as they do. It was right in the middle of one of my favourite lines!
