I know I bash on east coast resorts, Vail resorts (like we all do) and am a smart ass prick. But the Utah Avalanche Center does accident reports better then almost anywhere in the world. Lots of you guys travel out west (where I’m at) and I’m sure have thought about ducking a rope or hiking side country or back country. Read this report and watch this video.
If this stuff can save 1 life or have 1 group make a good decision it’s worth it. Even back east there is a handful of areas that could get you in trouble. 5 min read and video does nothing but give knowledge and share experiences. This one is pretty sobering. Mistakes were made and arguments can be had. End result is the same.
Get out there and ski and have fun and enjoy snow like we are all here for. Do it safe to do it another day.
