I didn't realize it was Quebec, but 200 people can go down a slope and it rip out on the 201 person. It just takes finding that magical release spot where the snow isn't as deep. I am always going to preach awareness since avalanches suck.
Yep, had a couple people die in BC already this year. They could still happen in Quebec, I wouldn't take the risk. I know where the OP is coming from though. In Ontario there basically are no glades, anything that isn't a run is "out of bounds" which is very different from "outside the resort boundary" in avalanche country.
