Skiers and not snowboarders from what i understand:

Somebody posted this about the Delirium Dive avalanche on Sunshine's facebook site:

They were on their 3rd turn from the top when the entire face fractured. They both got caught up in it, and were swept top to bottom and thrown cartwheeling right over a cliff band. When everything eventually came to a stop at the very bottom, one was buried and one was on the surface. About 8 or 10 people assembled at the base and began digging. Sunshine Ski Patrol were immediately on the scene. Prayers to both. It was ugly.
