    Excellent and extensive article. Should serve as a warning about going along with herd. The folks involved were pros and made some big errors. this got passed around among my friends who do a lot of ice and rock climbing and very technical mountaineering - generated a lot of discussion.

    One of the best written and presented articles I've read in a long time. Plus just an incredible situation.

    BTW: This has been posted here at least 4 times in the past few weeks. With each thread only having a few replies. Maybe they can be combined?

    I knew this was posted before. It's still a very cool article. The way they wrote it with the interactivity really brings it to life.

    Haha, well guess I need to pay better attention. I actually came across it on a Information Graphics site.

    Powerful and sad story. It drives home the need to speak up when something doesn't feel right, which is something so many people have a hard time doing. I agree that the mix of the photos, video, graphics and audio is well done.

    A must read for any backcountry skier. Very surprised they did not dig a snow pit. On conditions like this, you would think at least one of them would have done minimal on-site assessment. Lots of mistakes were made for sure.
