Huge avalanche in Oberwallis in Switzerland

By Arjen on 15 January 2016 · 0

A huge avalanche came down in Randa (Switzerland) yesterday. Somebody had the change to film this huge avalanche on the road from Visp to Zermatt. Around 120-250 centimeter of freshies came down since last Friday, casuing huge spontaneous avalanches. Just like this huge avalanche that was triggered in Bessans. The only difference is that the avalanche in Bessans was triggered and did not came down spontaneously.
