Accident: Face du Charvet E Face, 11:45 Val d'Isère April 1

Part of a group of skiers was taken in an avalanche on the Face du Charvet in Val d'Isère close to mid-day today April 1. One person was taken over a cliff and badly injured (flown in helicpter to the hospital)

The Face du Charvet is an East facing slope that starts at about 2600 m - the base is about 2000 m. I was just finishing my morning on spring snow at about 12:15 on a West face in the Marmottes area when I saw the rescue taking place.
