Massive Avalanche Hits Russian Ski Resort

Avalanche mitigation efforts went awry at a Russian ski resort when a blast to loosen new snow slid into tourist facilities instead of into the trees as anticipated. The slide buried twelve people, six of whom have been rescued and an additional three are still being located. Four of the six rescued were injured in the slide and there was one fatality reported. Rescue efforts were carried out by more than 200 responders but have been hampered due to bad weather. 

The avalanche occurred in Russia's republic of Karachay-Cherkessia at the urban ski settlement Dombay, situated on Mt. Mussa-Achitara. The slide itself hit two separate ski rental facilities as well as a cafe. Although Dombay's population is under 1,000 it's a popular tourist destination for skiing and other outdoor activities.

Thankfully, the snowblader survived the incident without harm, and eventually, the local Romanian police were able to shoo the bear away. Snowbladers take heed of our advice.

WATCH: Sherpas Pull Off One Hell of a Crevasse Rescue on Everest

Crossing the Khumbu Icefall on the slope of Mount Everest is no joke. The whole ordeal requires several crevasse crossings in the sketchiest way possible: walking across a series of Home Depot ladders while wearing crampons. Not to mention, the ice structures around you are always changing and are known to collapse. Unfortunately, one climber experienced his worst nightmare when he lost his balance on one of the crossings. The safety line was the only thing keeping him from plunging into the

This brings the total number of US avalanche deaths for the 20-21 season to 25. Tragically, a snowboarder also died in a tree well inbounds at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on Sunday. Across much of the Mountain West, avalanche conditions have been exceptionally dangerous with buried persistent weak layers and sporadic but
