Avalanches, Andorra & best pow pow 2015

A lot of freeriders got cached by avalanches this winter. It is said but freeriding takes his risks. Anyway, I think many accidents could have been prevented: Today a good friend of me was riding down a couloir. When she was half away the couloir an avalanche from the top took her with 105 KM/h. The avalanche was made by an other freerider who did not wait long enough and dropped in the couloir to fast. Lucky the avalanche spat her out after 400 meters.

Enjoy life but think about the consequences of the danger from you and others!

I enjoy it a lot, beside I study the changes in snow almost every day.
