First Avy death of the season in Colorado today. Sounds like it was a snowboarder. Happened on Parkview Mountain which CAIC is saying is part of the Rabbit Ears zone. I am not familiar with that area except for driving over the pass.

RIP shredder.

Sounds like it was on Willow Creek Pass actually. Which I really wouldn't consider part of Rabbit Ears. I guess if you are zoning areas, it could make sense.

It was a friend and a touring partner.

After such a fun day, not really how I wanted to end the year. 2013 can't leave soon enough right now.

Wait a minute... wasn't there some guys on the FB splitboarder group talking about going up to Parkview today?

Oh fuck, we must've been typing at the same time. That answers that question. Very sorry to hear that.

It was those guys. You're dead on.

Thanks for the well wishes. I am still crying. He was a very good guy. I can't give out names but this is super rough news. All vibes should be directed towards his family.
