killclimbz Damn, sounds like two more are going to get added to the list. A group of seven on Independence Pass triggered a pretty large slide evidently. 3 injured, two missing. That will put Colorado at the average and we still got almost two months left of the killing season.

This is shaping up to be a season long talked about for multiple reasons. Number of avalanche deaths being just one. It is unusually dangerous in the west this year. It is going to take unusual patience to get through it safely for bc users I think.

killclimbz Six people have been killed in avalanches in the last five days. Needless to say we have crossed the tipping point in the West after all of the snow that has been received. Avy eyes need to be on high alert and terrain decisions are everything right now.

DrnknZag Yup....massive loading and upside down snowpack isn't good. Sounds like the guy I've boarded with before just narrowly made it out. And understandably still in shock.

E Oregon avalanche kills 2

2 Seattle skiers killed, 2 others injured in Oregon avalanche | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News

Saw this yesterday and found out this morning a couple people in the group were my sisters friends. One whom I've snowboarded with before is alive, but two others aren't so lucky. Word from my sisters boyfriend is one of the guides died, along with their friends brother. Not good guys, this one hits close to home.
