Wolf Creek Pass slide
Some backcountry skiers set off a big slide on Wolf Creek Pass a couple of weeks ago, after the big snow.
The area had gotten 65 inches of snow in four days. The slope, says Aaron Cloud, who shot the footage, "was south-east facing and is about 11,000' in elevation. The slide was triggered by the second skier, our third lap on this terrain."
