The Ski Mountaineering World Championship was held at Cuneo Italy (http://www.skimountcuneo2006.it/eng/index.asp) from Feb 27 to March 4. On Friday an avalanche (http://www.skimountaineering.org/node/295#en) kicked off during the middle of the individual race partially burying some of the racers. A video of this can be found here (http://www.zippyvideos.com/7214637844121186/20060303_itn_en_03_avalanche_broadband/) . There are other threads over at Couloir Magazine (http://www.telemarkskier.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=forum;f=1) with some more about the slide and how the US team did there.

I heard about that almost right after it happend.... a few friends were in that comp and one of them emailed me a "Holy Sh!t" notice. Thankfully none I knew got caught in it although I still don't know the details. Waiting on more emails.
Like RR said.... Lookout! It happens! I wouldn't be surprised if something like that happens at Jay soon considering the dumping they just got.

How many were injured. Were there any fatalities, as the clip was unsure.
