article is good

i've thought the same thing....
it is a good example to the resort access group of bc users which seems to be rapidly growing and increasingly advertised to. It is also a good example of group dynamics with groups of any experience level, especially some comments in the espn article. I think the public views it differently when a group with more experience gets caught vs the unaware. Seems like there is more about tunnel creek than the Manaslu avalanche. Mt climbing is viewed as extreme skiing powder is having fun.
