Impressive avalanche at la Grave

On the 23rd March, 2015 a guided group at la Grave is engulfed by the powder cloud of an avalanche triggered by falling séracs on the East Col of the Pelvoux above the glacier noir.

"The guide, extremly professional and very calm, instantly gave us in a few words, all the procedure to follow. What impressed me most was how dark it became and in a time frame of a few seconds to change from beautiful sunshine to storm !”
