Its standard practice in many places with superlative snowfall to manually cause avalanches in a controlled way before they happen. These guys in Russia started an avalanche with two huge anti-aircraft guns, but they get a little more than they bargained for once the snow began to slide down the mountain face. There has to be a Soviet Russia joke in here somewhere...In Soviet Russia, avalanche causes you? Nah, thats no good. Still, dont mess with nature; its going to decide when to crush you with ice and elements when it wants to, whether you like it or not.
