Thanks for the pic, was not sure exactly where this occurred and that puts it into perspective.
Was that pic recent, like from the actual indident or not? I remember seeing this area when I was there from the top of the ridge, it's definitely a tempting looking hike but KH is a very raw place, this isn't like hiking wawa ridge at Sunshine.
I agree that even in 'considerable' risk days like this one you can find deep turns in the BC, for sure. You've just got to find some lower-angle stuff at or below treeline, usually - this slope was neither, unfortunately.
41 deaths?? Good god, that's pretty high, I believe more than a dozen have been in British Columbia alone.
