How much difference do avy beacons really make, anyway? Real avalanche safety is about training, research and careful decisions; the beacons are just a small part of that. Was it negligent? Most surely. Is it tragic? Of course. But to charge him with homicide seems like insult on top of injury. The man's wife just died.
