    Do those mountains ever have avalanches at all?

    well it gets really dark. the 'sun' (or what we see of it) sets at 3:30pm and rises around 11 am. (its not like 30 days of night (the movie) where its dark 24/7 (all hollywood))

    In the summer the sun sets at 11:30 pm ish, and rises at 4:30am. which i love!

    With the past avalanches how far have they like 'travelled', all the way down to the bottom of the mountain? (sorry, only seen mountans in real life 3-4 times)

    30 days of night.. good show. lol.

    i edited this photo of pioneer peak 6,398 ft. i circled in red the locations of avalanches. it depends on where it starts, some go down the valley floors and others stop half way. :)

    yeah, thought it was funny when they blew up the "Pipeline" at the end. -no way they'd let that happen....well they are vampires. also thought it was funny there werent any natives in the movie. c'mon guys- theyre in Barrow! (which the pipeline doesnt go through :scratch: ) --that'd be Prudoe Bay. LOL
