Avalanche at Loveland Pass Colorado. `
 
Authorities: 5 people buried in Colorado avalanche - CNN.com


Cnn just posted this but 5 people are buried. Rescue crews are on their way.
I hope everyone makes it out ok. Sending positive vibes and well wishes.



Edited to add: I hope that no one from this board were out there:(


There is already a thread in Backcountry travel. Mods can you merge the 2 or how do I delete this one?

5 confirmed dead from my recent understanding.... Very sad. That's 6 in a few days up here

The one that went on vail pass was a deep slab and very strong. I'm guessing this one was just as bad.

They were all attending a splitfest promoted by Snowboarder Mag.

I chose to do my own thing at Bert. Loveland Pass is not great for splitting, I don't know why it wasn't held at Berthoud Pass. Which has plenty of dangers. So don't read this as it should have been there. This is bad, really bad. There are going to be people involved in this that are well within six degrees of separation for me. I can't stop crying.
