Watch: Telluride Avalanche Makes A Spectacle

When heavy snows blanket Ajax Mountain just east of Telluride, Colo., avalanche mitigation specialists set a charge to release the slide.

Visitors and residents took advantage of the opportunity to watch the massive avalanche from a safe perspective in this video by Caldera Creative. Telluride has had more than 200 inches of snow this year. Stay safe out there!
