|walove||the hayden creek incident is the same as the one posted by lonerider, their dog was also buried and thought dead, then showed up at their hotel in cooke four days later. Things arn't looking good here in montana, 26in base at the ski area, backcounrty is super sketchy, with a week of dry weather in the forecast. Lets hope for safer decisions when the snow falls again. Two avy deaths in montana all of last year, and two in the same day this year.|

Besides for continuing on with plenty of warnings, sometimes that just happens...
The batteries were weak? They turned on their beacons after they reached the end of the ski track? Talk about bad mistakes. Your beacon should be "on at the car, off at the bar", end of story. Included in that should be a beacon check to make sure you have enough battery power. Talk about setting yourself up for failure. Batteries are not expensive people, keep them fresh in your beacon, and turn the damn thing on as soon as you step out of the car...

Report: Mont. avalanche victim ignored warning - Nation - TheState.com

Wow my work would never let that fly. I think we are not able to accept gifts over 50 bones from a supplier.
The CAIC video is crazy. Looks like some super fun terrain though for sure. I am excited if I get to come out that way this year. If it ever snows enough to have a spring season.
I have been following the canadian avalanche center pretty closely for my trip this weekend. It appears they have more snow but they also have some problems in their snowpack as well on Rogers Pass. Hopefully this next storm comes in and nukes it and everything settles quickly.

|david_z||Nasty start to the season, the guy in Revy actually worked as VP of something-or-other at the same company as my wife. She tells me he was on a trip with & paid for by one of their customers. Seems odd, from a corporate risk management perspective, to take vendor/client employees on such an excursion but what do I know.|

Just got through watching the video. That guy is so damn lucky he's not dead. That is a rough ride he took.
The video report pretty much tells all.

Silent Pass... is it just me, or is that a really creepy sounding place? I don't know why, just seems creepy.
Nice save with the tree grab. That was a lot of snow, but he was lucky it didn't take off on him. Really slow moving slide.
