A recent video has surfaced of an avalanche popping on Mt. Mansfield in Vermont. The real time live footage is pretty crazy that these guys were able to capture the exact moment this avalanche slid.

The moral of the story is you can never be too safe. Avalanche safety is paramount in backcountry terrain. Before heading out, make sure to check avalanche forecasts and plan your route accordingly. Carry essential gear including a transceiver (beacon), probe, and shovel. Take an avalanche safety course to learn how to use this equipment effectively. Travel one at a time in avalanche-prone areas and watch for signs like recent avalanches, cracks in the snow, or hollow-sounding snow. Avoid steep slopes during periods of high avalanche danger, and always have an escape route planned. Stay informed about changing snow conditions and be prepared to turn back if conditions deteriorate. Remember, the safest way to avoid avalanche danger is to not be in its path.
