Default Two saved at Brighton today

We saw the cornice go when we were on the lift. Then when we were unloading a guy came yelling down the peak and they sent the dogs out. Real bad call today for backcountry in salt lake. we just got wet snow on some light fluff and everything was really windloaded.

I heard about this one on another forum. Sounds like a couple "bro brah" boarders who have no idea what the dangers are until now. Maybe. No gear, no sense, and dumb luck is about all they have at this point. Even in these conditions you can enjoy the bc. It's just a matter of what you choose to enjoy.
