With the amount of snow that came down, I could see a person on a snowboard getting stuck there overnight, but certainly not two nights.

As far as safe runs go. Hoop Creek, Telegraph (the very bottom of that is threatened by slides from Floral Park), Hells Half Acre, Current Creek 90's area, the Meadows, and Pumphouse are all relatively safe bets.

Vibes to the lost rider... its not looking good but hopefully they find him.

Don't want to take away from the original intent of this thread, but I had a question:

Kill - is there a map or anything for these backcountry spots that lays all of these "runs" out, or do you just gain this knowledge over time? I mean, does everyone call all of these "runs" the same thing and it gets out by word of mouth, or how is it documented?
