WATCH: Drone footage of enormous Peak 1 avalanche near Frisco
Summit County photographer Tripp Fay captured this amazing drone footage of the avalanche off Peak One on Thursday. The massive avalanche near the J Chute — just off of Rainbow Lake — tore through the landscape, stripping trees and leaving a gigantic white scar on the side of the peak.
Substantial snowfall this week has led to historic avalanche conditions in the area.
At least one boulder will need to be blasted as part of the cleanup effort.
