What was it, a couple of years ago that a tiny avalanche killed a guy I want to say down in the San Juans? They had no gear and were planning on playing it safe, but a tiny little drainage slope slid on him and buried him deep in a terrain trap. I can't find the details on it right now.

Not related to that incident, but here's a good article on the subject:

Ah, even better, found a video on the subject. It's the second video.
