Snow Fall/Elyse's Video
To hear Elyse Saugstad talk about the avalanche that almost took her life, you would be astonished at how calm and collected she remains. All things considered, it seems as though she simply awakened from a horrifying nightmare rather than survived a very real catastrophe. Elyse very simply describes being trapped in the avalanche as "like being stuck in a washing machine. I didn't know which way was up, I didn't know which way was down." A simple way of putting it, but extremely effective.
