Ski blogger Sam Lozier is spending a chunk of this winter in
During this most recent storm (which is still going on), a large contingent of the Indian military hiked up to a point below tree line near the ski resort. Soon after they arrived, while preparing tea, an extremely large avalanche ripped out from the high alpine terrain and swept down onto the flats into the trees. The avalanche had such force that it toppled 200-year-old trees and decimated the Indian Army encampment.
Details are still somewhat sketchy from this end, but to the best of my knowledge 17 soldiers have died, with many more wounded.
