Watch Avalanche Control Work In The San Juan Mountains Near Ophir, Colorado – March 2004


Watch 5 Minutes Of Avalanche Control Work From March 2004 In Ophir, Colorado

This avalanche footage comes out of the San Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado near the town of Ophir. After a natural slide blocked the road and cut off power to the area, Telluride Helitrax got the call to do a bit of avalanche control work. This avalanche control work was done on March 2004.

This is still one of the more impressive avalanche control work films out there – over 5 minutes of avalanches. If you haven’t seen this yet, watch it. If you’ve seen it before, it’s worth watching again.

  • The Beartooth Mountains of Montana are an incredible zone for
    backcountry skiing, ski mountaineering, climbing, hiking, and other
    activities. Here’s a very cool video by Beau Fredlund and KT Miller that
    takes a closer look ski mountaineering in this remote and relatively
    unknown zone – their backyard.
