Cheers

Weird. Luckily it happened before the lunch crowd gathered or it really could have been bad.

It's been talked about in this thread about current avalanche dangers

I'll be there Thursday through next Tuesday. Today the resort is closed except for a couple of runs.

The skier who died on Saturday was pulled out of the avalanche within 6 minutes. Yikes.

I'll be skiing with an expert instructor again because I don't want to ski alone like I did last year for a day. I got caught is some very nasty areas and was thankful to make it out of there. Had I done that this year I don't think I would have made it.

Regards,
Mark

We'll keep this info out of your thread about avy safety.

Was reading the info -- that's the second floor. Unbelievable.

Apparently, the whole kitchen was wiped out and the backside of the bulding is pretty much gone. They will probably have to just demolish and start from scratch.

Was this anywhere near the new flagship tram?

No.

I'm always taken aback at how devastating mother nature can be with little warning. The most advanced science available to man is sometimes no match for her unpredictability. I remember when an upper lodge at Breckenridge got taken out a few years ago.

Could the warm weather and warmer ground that that took the dumping be at least partially to blame? It makes sense to me that snow sticks to cold ground better than warm ground. Snow is also heavier at warmer temps.

I'm bummed for the friends and families of all those we've lost already this year. There's no way to imagine what they must be going through.
