The Football Field is famous for avalanches.

“The camera captures two skiers in close proimity to fracture and avalanche.  The skiers initially appear below the cloud layer.  The skiers stop moving downhill as moving snow passes by them.  The skiers then move into the skier area boundary and are met by two other skiers.”  – Montana State University
