KT avalanche at Squaw - Page 2

post #31 of 33

Jeez.  Three in-bounds incidents in a week?  I don't know what's going on with your snowpack right now, but that's pretty crazy.  Be safe everyone, and I hope the Alpine patroller is ok.

^^ There's a nasty ice layer with several feet of snow on top of it.  Everyone kind of saw this coming in advance but no one figured it would be quite this bad.

Sorry to hear all this bad news on that side of the pond. 


I'm a little concerned over here given a REALLY early start followed by very cold, followed by unusually warm (no jacket on Christmas!?) and some rain-- and whatever comes next. We could be getting set up for something similar... except the second we step off the piste there's no (or no acknowledged) control.


It's so hard to turn back from good looking powder-- but it's so much better to be able to ski another 10, 20, 50 years where inevitably scores of even better days will set up under safe(r) conditions. 


Keep your heads.
