Three confirmed dead now. Happened OB at Stevens Pass, if I'm reading it correctly. Hopefully the others are found safely...

Here's the article:

U.S. News - 3 dead, 8 missing in Wash. avalanche

Sounds like maybe sidecountry?

Been a shitty season all over this year, and I imagine pretty bad snowpacks are common out west right now.

When I was in the Army I knew a man who had 3 rules about sex, one of them was "quantity not quality". I really regret not asking him what 200 pound twins would classify as.

STEVENS PASS, Wash. – Three people are confirmed dead in an avalanche at Stevens Pass.
Others who were reported missing have been accounted for.
The avalanche occurred on Tunnel Creek Canyon Road just outside of Skykomish.
It's not known what set off the the slide.
SR 2 is not affected, the State Patrol says


That sucks. Positive vibes for the families involved. I was just up there last night. The hills are loaded. Someone died at Alpental today too. They say a snowboarder went over a cliff. Alpy is known to have big, nasty cliffs. Rough day out here in WA. Stay safe folks.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

sounds like CNN is wrong

Everything else I've seen seems to indicate that it was sidecountry terrain.
