We have heard reports of a avalanche in the back bowl of the peak of Mt.Annupuri yesterday with 3 people being buried. Great to hear that there were no fatalities. Please read today’s avalanche report for more information.
Bear in mind that anyone venturing through the gates does so at their own risk and must be prepared for the worst case scenario – unfortunately accidents do happen.
Today will be a great day to get up on the mountain and enjoy the superb views. Stay safe out there.
