Vic's Ski Day Avalanche

Headed out for my first real ski of the season last week. Having been in South America for a couple of months and coming home to poor snow conditions I've been more excited to ride my bike, but last Saturday I finally rallied and pulled out the sticks. 

The weather conditions were typical Colorado; cold and bluebird.

I was thinking of going easy, and was surprised at how tender conditions on Independence Pass felt. Headed up looking for something that was neither windblown nor loaded and chose our slope. Standing off to the side of the bowl we triggered an avalanche that one of our party got on film.
