At Squaw, a slide at KT22 took out three people. Fortunately nobody was seriously hurt. Crazy, all this shit happening inbounds! Though at Alpine, Sherwood was closed at the time.
Patrol who was buried and lifted out died. The slide was higher and wider than it had ever been, according to the stories.
