That clip was shown at the FOBP Avy intro I went to.

As I recall it was INBOUNDS at Wolf Creek, but maybe not.

It's Suicide Bowl on the North side of Wolf Creek Pass. Most definitely not inbounds.

For someone who smokes more weed than Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson combined, we probably need to give him partial credit for that one.

Yes I took Av 1. No I dont have the equipment but we were planning to stay on the east side, closer to the road, wouldnt be hiking out to the bowl area that we did last month.

Several others have probes, beacons, etc. I realize that doesnt do anything for me and I personally dont want to end up a news story. We'll head over and assess the conditions when we get there. If its no bueno we'll just hit A-bay or the Stone.

No worries, I'm not trying to ruin Xmas for anyone or give 'dumb snowboarders' a bad name!

Appreciate the heads up and concern from everyone.

Maybe Santa left some BC equipment under the tree, theres a lot of swag down there!

Just keep your eyes wide open and use your head. The close calls have been rolling this week in Colorado.

Unfortunately it is only a matter of time until we have our first death at this point.
