|caneyhead||Didn't know him personally, but know people that did. Nothing but good things to say from those who knew him. My kids rode with him at moonlight through their freerire team a few times. He gave them posters and autographs. People around here were excited about having him around this season. Whole community is saddened. Too bad.|

I found this whole thing crazy... there is no way a guy who's been out in the backcountry filming and hucking cliffs for like 15-20 years has no avy experience.
The saddest thing is for ever he was known as a crazy guy who drank and smoked himself into oblivion until getting his life together and cleaning up his act. It's always so tragic when things like this happen after all he went through and survived in his life.

|killclimbz||Not at all. It's just time after time we've seen these type of thread devolve over the course. I do think discussion over this incident is warranted, just not here.|

^^^ That's not about me right?
This is such a tragedy. I didn't even knew Jamie was a snowboarder. I guess he was out just trying to float some pow with one of his bros.

I've created a thread to discuss early season dangers, decision making, and what ever else. So please leave your condolences here, but let's not douche up this thread with criticisms and words that can be seen as insensitive and hurtful to friends and family who might find this.
Leave that to the thread I created. Be respectful please.

We have a super shitty weaklayer right now and if you don't know avy skills I wouldn't get out in it. They closed Alta yesterday a little early to uphill since there were I think 4 slides inbounds with one resulting in a broken femur. We need a big storm to flush this layer.
Snowbird and Alta are not closed to traffic early and late season, but they HAVE to be treated like BC. There are tons of people stomping around without gear which is silly, but this isn't the thread to talk about that.
This is a tragedy for sure and vibes to his wife and kids.
Here is the preliminary report from Kowboy.
Accident: Gad Valley 11/13/2011 | Utah Avalanche Center
