The Heroes Project spokesman Zach Rosenfield says Staff Sgt. Charlie Linville, 28, remains at basecamp at 17,598 feet where he arrived on Wednesday.
Linville lost his right foot, several fingers and suffered an injured back while diffusing a bomb in Afghanistan in 2011.
The Heroes Project is making a documentary about injured veterans climbing the tallest peaks on seven continents. Rosenfield says Mount Everest is the projectís last peak to be climbed.
Rosenfield says none of the six members of the team were caught in the avalanche.
He says the team is assessing the situation before deciding its next move.
