The Inertia

Have you ever witnessed an avalanche in real life? Not just a little dusting of snow sliding sedately down a gradual slope, but a real honest-to-goodness avalanche? The power of these winter phenomena isn’t necessarily transferable to video. They rumble deep in your chest and make your toenails feel as though they’re going to rattle off. Avalanches are one of the few things in nature that truly shows us just how tiny we really are, and this example, filmed on January 15 in Vinadi, Switzerland, is a prime example.


Only the best. We promise.
