THIS IS not the scene you want to see when returning to your car after a day’s skiing.
An avalanche tore through a car park at the foot of Mount Elbrus in the North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia, on Saturday, burying and crushing cars while pushing them around like toys.
The video above shows multiple views of the incident as those in the area looked on helplessly.
Another angle shows how a Lada, famous for their toughness, seems to almost brush off the deluge.
The yellowish colour of the snow was caused by sand blown in from North Africa.
