Here is little look at a very close call by a couple guys skiing the Northwest Passage in Granite Canyon and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort backcountry during last year’s epic snow season. It looks like on this day there was some considerable avalanche danger and one skier came one turn away from getting munched. This serves as a reminder to always be aware of your surroundings, remember to look uphill for potential hazards and to always wait for the skiers below you to get out of the way before dropping in. Live to Ski!!!
