You know the road we 200 guys took down the mountain from Black Bear Pass above Telluride in August?

Massive avalanche started on purpose...fills the width of valley at bottom!

**It takes TIME to develop, but gets HUGE.
-Starts around 30 second in...**keep watching.**

Incredible video shows controlled avalanche near Telluride


An aside... California's drought is officially OVER (Edit: in 49% of the state so far).
-Mammoth Mountain Ski Area:
-Snow base: 300 inches!! That's...25 FEET deep!!!

Two weeks ago I had a 3 foot powder day of champagne powder in Steamboat. There is so much snow in northern Colorado as well. The latest I've seen the passes open here was the end of July. It may be August this year.

Hmmm... I posted this in the 200 forum...
Why? -Because 22 different 200 series members did the rather technical Black Bear together last summer.
Why did it get removed from 200 and sent to general chit-chat?
