Alpine Meadows Avalanche of 1982

For those of you who are from the Bay Area and were born prior to or in the 60's or early 70's you may remember the big avalanche at Alpine Meadows in 1982.

We're big Alpine skiers now and love the resort. Our kids are in a weekly program there and we're all season pass holders.

For some reason this past weekend, we were talking about the massive avalanche that killed 7 people and covered the base of the resort and most of the parking lot. It's not a great bed-time story, but if you remember the event, you'll find these links super interesting - both about the disaster and the story of Anna Conrad who survived the avalanche and was buried alive for five days. This is a great video rememberance of the story which is about 8 minutes long, but well worth it.
