VIDEO: “Avalanche From Hell”

SnowBrains | | AvalancheAvalanche

This avalanche is from way back when on Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand.  This is a ridiculously enormous class 5 avalanche with the capacity to take out a village.

There is a ski resort on this mountain just out of view to the looker’s left in this video.  

Ruapehu is a very sacred mountain to the Maori people and one of the world’s most active volcanoes.  It’s the largest active volcano in New Zealand at 9,177-feet above sea level.
