Earth Quakes and Avalanches

The Canterbury earth quake had a dramatic effect on the mountains by initiating a widespread avalanche cycle. Slopes that skiers would normally not be able to trigger avalanches on were  shaken so hard that large slides were initiated! The good news is that we can now ski everywhere with confidence due to the stabilising affect of the avalanche! The other good news is it continues to snow and September is shaping up to be a great month.
