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.
Amid a challenging debut, the new whitewater park in Eagle made quite a splash during its opening season in the summer of 2019.
