/ "Briton 'swims' avalanche and escapes with a few bruises"
An excellent write up of the experience here: http://allyswinton.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/swim-on-blanc.html#more
Ally, I'm exceedingly glad you're OK!
A great write up. A key word for me was 'wind' which was mentioned several times. The slide that killed Roger Payne and others last summer was also after unseasonal bad weather and high wind. It looks like windslab is now much more of an issue in summer and spring than it used to be.
