Excellent Avalanche Video

Out in western North America, avalanches are always a danger in and near ski areas. Every winter, you hear of people getting killed or injured by avalanches.

A lot of resorts intentionally set off avalanches when nobody is around in an effort to prevent future avalanches that might occur when the crowds turn out at the slopes.

Some of these intentional avalanches are a sight to behold, much like this video of such a project in Stewart, British Columbia. Keep with the video to the end, it's all cool.
