    That doesn't look right. Certainly not safe. If that wall "Calved off" it would likely kill folks instantly.

    Mt Hood is getting it's share. Photo from this morning at MHM.

    That photo was around last winter, when there were large snowfalls in Europe and a UK newspaper mistakenly used it in the story. That's the other reason the photo gained notoriety.

    Similar pic could be taken in Mt Gosson in march but it's 6m (just a little bit higher than the bus) but still snow had to be dug in like the picture. I kinda believe it but sounds like it's fake.

    Look at this video around 1 minute in... looks like the same place to me... 2011 video.
    ...OK on further research not Hokkaido, but Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route.
