That's crazy. I've always wanted to see one :)

It was quite something...I spotted it just as we got there...I got off about 6 shots as the snow tumbled down the mountain, these 2 were the best of the bunch!
Kinda humbling in a way to watch actually.... :)

Wow Casil! What a series of shots! Slides happen so fst it's hard to get ready in time. I was at Elbow Falls this morning but it looks like I should have kept going.

cheers

Here's a couple more... not as sharp as the first group but still quite something to see!

Years ago I was camping at the Interlakes camp ground and I kept hearing the sound of fighter jets flying down the valley. One day on a hike I saw a tiny avalanche which produced my jet fighter sound. That must have sounded like the whole airforce flying by!

Must have been a great experience watching this. Even better photographing it. Well done casil403. Glad you were not too close!

Oh! I just saw this. I have never seen an avalanche but have seen the glaciers 'calve' in Alaska and that is noisy too! Very cool that you got those shots Casil!
