He runs a guide company with his wife, whom my girlfriend actually went to school with.

Kill, I actually did mean writing....like writing on a blank canvas!
I'm still in awe of that place. The mountains are just so unreal. The valley sits at about 3000 ft and mountains just go straight up on both sides to around 10,000 ft, with even higher peaks. Mont Blanc is over 15,000 ft and Aiguille du Midi is over 12,000 ft.
The resorts are very different out there too. Once you step off that groomed, you're pretty much in the backcountry. I don't believe they do much avy mitigation at all. Kinda interesting too that almost 50% of all skiers and boarders have some sort of ABS pack, not just those venturing off piste.
