Avalanche

Typical chic choc windslab. Very strong wind. Locally connected terrain trigger at leat 2 or 3 wind slab inside the cuve. We also trigger a second wind slab avalanche on the way down. The trigger was in ‘grand couloir A’. Strong wind cross loaded slope on the crust was the main cause for these avalanches
