I agree that all of the classic red flags were there. Snowing over an inch an hour, lot's of wind, plus natural avalanches were visible at various spots on the pass. Ultimately he paid with his life. You can't really ask for much more than that. Hopefully this is a learning experience.

I was at the pass on Friday and almost everyone I talked too was asking about this accident. So it is definitely in front of people's minds. Of course there was a fair number of riders out there sans gear, hopefully they won't venture into avalanche terrain...
