I have no idea about their training. In the US they should have training in that regard. It is also very early season and I doubt they had a ton of snow in that area. It doesn't take much though. Threat of burial is as great at this time of year, but the threat of getting beat to death in a slide is very high. Sounds like this was the case.

I would imagine there is some hand wringing going on at the corporate office...
