A video of an avalanche has been viewed thousands of times in posts that falsely claim it shows an accident in the Indian ski resort of Gulmarg in which two Polish tourists died after being trapped by snow on February 1, 2023. The video -- which features two skiers speaking Russian -- has circulated in reports since December 2022 about an avalanche in Russia’s Sheregesh resort.
