Shallow spot, lots of triggers, trees, maybe cliffs, consequence. Sad.

We heard of the slide when we got on the bus and saw a guy in that group get on the bus. We asked him how his run was and he mentioned a big slide on CDC. I asked if everyone got out, and he said they pulled his buddy out with no pulse and are doing cpr. He said he had no pulse and was purple.
Does anyone else find that weird?

People do weird shit when they experience shocking, traumatic events. That's my only explanation.

Lets also keep in mind this is third party information. Not always the most reliable source. Maybe I shouldn't have even copied it over here. I agree it is a bit weird. Though maybe he was useless on sight and they asked him to bring ski patrol/S&R to the site.

Also a strong possibility. If their whole party was accounted for, no need for everyone to hang around. The initial report is that all three survivors were injured, but no report of the severity. The best call very well may have been to send the guy in the best shape out to get help.

The guy was a true lifelong local that we all know. Feel bad for his family and our friends that rode with him today.

This is the most active time of year for avalanche deaths right now.

We are in the thick of it right now and we have an angry snow pack. This one hits several people I know. I did not know the victim, which not to sound callous but I am thankful for. I couldn't stand to deal with the loss of another friend this way. We haven't even put George to ground yet...

Again, sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
