I am going to let both threads fly. This is a horrible day. I think the discussions about this event are going to be valid. Keep it classy. 5 people are dead. Regardless of what happened, the price paid was too high.

This is horrible. I was up there Tuesday and I was sketched out and called it after two lines arouns 2 PM. I hope the best for all surviving family and friends who are affected by this, especially any SBF folks. May you find peace.

Dang, makes me think about my decision to splitboard every time, and every time i think to myself; this could be me. I sincerely hope that where ever you go after life, its snows alot. Kind of like your own little private baker? Oh god.... I feel for them all.

I must ask, was there anyone involved that's from SBF?

Driving back from Vail today we were like why the fuck is Loveland pass closed (wasn't snowing and roads were fine).

Condolences to do all the families affected by this.

It seems like every big disaster I hear about occurs when there are huge groups involved. I'm getting into splitting next year, so this is a total amateur hour observation, but that's what it feels like.

Big groups result in various kinds of heuristic traps. Ian McCammon has a great article on the psychology of back country travel that I would recommend to anyone. For example, he found that "people who travel alone or in groups of 6-10 appeared to expose themselves to significantly more hazard than groups of four or groups of more than ten." Although he can't tell us why.

Got a link? Or is it easily googleable?

Oh man. What a nightmare. To see lives cut short like this is gut wrenching. May their families find peace.
