Plake survives avalanche in Nepal

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I read about this a few weeks ago and can't believe nobody's mentioned this yet:

 

KATMANDU, Nepal — Renowned American extreme skier Glen Plake says he feels lucky to be alive after surviving the weekend Himalayan avalanche that killed at least eight people, but he's heartbroken that he could not save two friends.

There were a couple of threads in the lead up to the Manaslu campaign, and they picked up on the avalanche at the time.  Then idris (who skis with Plake in Chamonix) started the attached thread on the Trip Report board.
