Sucks, to say the least. News says the boarder was buried for five hours before being found. One of his mates was saying they went to the ski patrol when their friend didn't show up after their run, but sp didn't start a search for three hours.

BTW (on edit); not dissing ski patrol. Just reporting what I'm seeing on CNN. Sp guy said they did an initial "courtesy search," but they deemed conditions were too hazardous to mount a full search. Which begs the question; if sp thought inbound conditions were so hazardous, why were they letting skiers and riders out?
