I love it that this one is coming around again. I posted this last year when it first came out. I forget if we had the bc forum then or if I just slapped it in general. An absolute eye opening video of what can happen when bad decisions are made. You just don't get buried, then your buddies dig you out, ha ha, that was a close one. One of the best videos about this sort of tradgedy out there. Thanks for posting this up.

It was very sobering to watch. They knew their stuff, but the human factor comes into play.

Not knowing much about backcountry and the dangers, this was very interesting to watch and find out how it can go bad.

Thanks for this link - a film any BC user should watch and learn from.

What a touching story. It had me gripped from start to finish.

I hope his wife and son are doing well now 5 years later.

Thank you for sharing this!

Thanks for sharing this video. This video renewed my respect in nature and not underestimate its powers. My hopes and best wishes to the family of Blake Morstad.

That was a great one. With all due respect to the deceased, it sounds like this was a situation where the proper precautions were taken, the conversations were had, then a renegade member of the group (who also happened to be the most qualified and honestly, probably about as qualified as you can get - I mean c'mon, a graduate degree focusing on snow studies, how many people have THAT?!) chose to ignore those precautions and discussions to seek a sicker line.

I have minimal backcountry snow experience, but a ton of backpacking and general woodsmanship experience. Mother Nature is beautiful, enchanting, but that bitch will turn on you in a second and often doesn't grant second chances.
