    Think they'll do a good job or a sensationalist piece on cliff huckers?

    I'll second this.

    Some manufactured drama and warnings of how dangerous it is etc...

    If they do a sensationalist piece on cliff huckers, it will be incredibly ironic as I suspect most of the Avi deaths this year didn't happen when skiers and riders were actively involved in hucking escapades. And the grand huckster himself survived his record setting drop only to be swept away in an avalanche.

    It would be a much more interesting piece if it focused on decision making and how powder obsession and not wanting to turn back without turns can realign perceptions despite having adequate training.

    Not too bad, but gave the impression that all backcountry skiing is hucking cliffs and what not.

    I saw it and it was obviously not meant for the people on this board which is ironic because we'd be the most interested in the topic.
