I've looked at some of your trip reports and they are amazing. A thought occurred to me just now, does anyone put avy beacons on their dogs if they take them with?

Anyway, these reports are very inspiring... makes me feel like I've been a slacker all these years.

killclimbz I read about the skier yesterday. Really sad. Linville, the snow pack around here has really stabilized. I am not ready to get on huge lines quite yet. Like Torrey's or the Silver (that is a death trap) on Buffalo but the chutes off of the divide around Bert are mostly a go. Fairly short and not a lot of stuff to get slammed into. Low consequence drops.

Strangely enough I saw more activity in Washington over my 3/4 of a week there than I saw all season here. Slides were of a different nature but the old axiom applies. "The most dangerous avalanche is the one you are caught in." Steve got a pop quiz on that one.

Yeah, I've only taken mine out a handful of times this year. We're having a pretty sketchy season here in the PNW as well, at least more sketchy than usual.
