D'oh the Shitcave! AKA "Lawine Pill Moos Passeier Beibach Pillerstrasse with english subtitle"

While waiting for my wife at the Post Office yesterday I witnessed an avalanche. It started on the north facing slope of a very steep peak in what is called the Bitteroot Range in east central Idaho. This is part of the Continental Divide.

The sight was awesome even though I was some seven miles distant. The wind blew snow for what looked like a mile across the top of the peak. No camera of course!

Was this film shown in a slowed down mode? This looked like it also had components of a debris fall mixed in. This was not as rapid as some of the avalanches I have observed in the Colorado Rockies. It sure left a lot of junk for the road crews to clean up not to mention the "pollution" of the stream channel.
