I actually had the Quail face rip lose on me in 93 I believe. Tahoe had been getting tons of snow for weeks. Someone had died on Quail face the week before. They had just blasted it. Same thing for me. Gave me quite a push.

Sadly I just read this morning that the ski patroller died from his injuries. Two avalanche deaths in the US, both from inbounds incidents. Unusual to say the least. RIP Bill Foster and thank you for making the slopes safer for all.
