This is a video my friend Claude posted after he got caught in an avalanche 5 years ago. Everybody made it safely but things could have ended badly. This is a good reminder of some basic safety rules, among which having beacons and ABS bags of course but also keeping safe distances. The video clearly shows that if they had been packed, skiing at 10 meters from one another, they'll have been all caught in the same batch.

Forget GoPro on your helmet: this is even better. Xavier de le Rue has been playing with drones to shoot amazing movies for a while: looks like he found a way to make his idea mainstream. Amazing and brilliant: well done!
Le Cairn, Face de Bellevarde Val d'Isère - Dec. 29, 2013
No harm done... except for my left ski which didn't like being caught by that treacherous rock.
