Like Morris said in his article about the avalanche that claimed one life in Hintertux yesterday: lots of snow came down, the mountains are getting in shape for winter and people started touring. It also means that you have to be careful in the mountains. Snow safety is key when you venture in the backcountry. Check out the video below from the Mont Blanc massid and more exactly in the region of the Petit Flambeau. This is a big avalanche, fortunately without any consequences, but it's impressive to see. Be careful when you're skiing or snowboarding off-piste. Go out with the right gear and the right knowledge and take it easy, the season has only just begun.
