This Terrifying Video Captures the True Power of an Avalanche

A video from last year is making rounds again ahead of this year’s ski season. The powerful video shows a gigantic avalanche in the Pacific Northwest.

Instagram user @jonfromupstairs recently added his video as a reel after seeing others share it without permission.

In the video, a massive avalanche crashes down Crystal Mountain in Washington State. The wall of snow consumes everything in its path.

No one was hurt in this video. However, five people died last year in Oregon and Washington from avalanches.

Whether skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing, anyone going into the backcountry in the winter should have proper avalanche training. The National Avalanche Center has more information on avalanche classes and offers daily forecasts on avalanche risk.
