I think this is the whole movie.



It's a gut wrencher for sure.

Wow!! I just finished watching this entire video! Definitely an Eye Opener for a Newb like me!

I haven't put too much time or attention into even checking out these kinds of vids or checking the various avalanche threads that get started. Not because I'm disinterested, but Only because I really didn't anticipate needing to know much about avalanche safety in the near foreseeable future! I'm pretty sure It will be a quite a while before I ever have the opportunity to ride anywhere where I thought that could/would be an issue!

Although, I seem to recall that It has been mentioned in some fairly recent threads that this kind of thing can still happen in and around resorts. Either people getting lost and/or deliberately riding out of bounds or even in "In Bounds, Slack country" (...if I understand the correct usage of that term!)

I feel very deeply for the individuals involved in this incident, even though I have never heard of any of the people involved prior to today! Since I AM interested in progressing with my riding to the level where I would be able to ride resorts where this kind of terrain is available,...

I can see it would be in my best interest to start paying attention to this sooner rather than later!!! If something like this can happen to such seasoned and knowledgable BC skiers and riders? I should learn to be smart and safe right from the get-go! (....even if it is years before I actually get to experience BC/SC riding!)

Thanks for reposting this link!!!!

:
Not to knit pick, but it is a common misconception for people if they ride the lift up even if they go out of a gate they will be safe. I ran into some kids last year that rode a slope from Solitude and they hit some line. I did an ECT before I dropped the slope and the slab fractured while cutting it with my saw. I asked the kids if they knew what they had any gear on and they said no and asked me how to get back to sillytude.

That being said, the term slack country should never exist, IMO. Every thing outside of a gate is considered backcountry. Not trying to talk shit but more or less educate others.

I'll one up it. If a slope is steep enough to ride, it's steep enough to slide. Granted, avalanches don't happen very often in bounds, but they do. And in places you'd least expect at times. Holiday Valley in New York had an inbounds avalanche in 2006.

Not saying that you need to be worried about this everywhere you ride, but being able to spot warning signs may help you avoid an unpleasant experience...

Glad to know you can run a google search and figure out slope angles that most slides happens. Which btw the way I have said the same exact thing in multiple threads that you jus pasted. I don't need to do an in depth overview with every post on this matter.

Guess I'll see you at CSAW next month? I'd like to put a face to the name.

I still have dingleberry #2 on ignore but it appears he has an axe to grind with you..... I will stick with steep enough to ride as a simplified term for slope angle in general conversations....
