Terrible news: two D teamers die in Austrian avalanche - Page 2

Well that's why the piece is irritating because it uses too many cliches when he knows better. There's off piste and then there's dangerous off piste. He makes it sound as if any off piste skiing is defacto death which too many people think anyway who've never been there.

I just think there was an opportunity to make a point about risks maybe even the d team which the kids pay to be there. He started to go there with the comparison between NA and Europe but then didn't. Also it's total speculation about what they're "allowed" to ski etc.
