Default 9 killed in avalanches since Feb 8

Just read that someone was killed in an avalanche in Idaho yesterday. Unusual snow produces unusual avalanches and we are living that paradigm right now.

9 people in just over a week is a lot. A shit ton. Avalanche.org has them all under accidents.

Definitely time to use your go to safe spots. If you are questioning it, maybe time to do something else. I can't think of a stretch where it has been so deadly and widespread. Only the Craig Kelly year comes up as more tragic.

Watch yourselves. Things will calm down. I know I am getting sick of doing the same 'ol same 'ol but it is what is being offered. Take the offer don't try to steal a line, the penalty if you get caught is death. Literally.

Be safe out there peeps. I got a lot of people on this forum I still need to tour with.
