So weird how this happens to Tahoe. Seems like they're either getting feet upon feet or nothing for weeks on end.

This is depressing: hot winds destroying the snow on x-mas, then snowfall (short yay), and the sad statistics of a new season begins with two deaths in two days SLF > Prevention > Avalanche accidents > Avalanche accidents in current year

That sucks neni and it makes me really sad.

We've had two very close calls in Colorado. One of them where a skier left the resort boundary without partners or gear. Got caught and fully buried in an avavlanche. A snowboarder in the area saw tge slide but not the skier. Figured to check it out, no hit on his beacon. Did a visual search found a ski pole and when he pulled on it a hand was attached. Dug the guy up and saved him. Snowboarder is a stud. Skier is a lucky mother fucker.

Deaths have been rolling in North america too. Jackson, Idaho, and Alberta all have recorded deaths now in the last 7 days. All were completely avoidable. Not sure what we need to do education wise, but right now it feels a little like spinning your wheels.

With these accidents and the horrible one in Japan, we are already on a record setting pace.

It is so much fun out there but there isn't a whole lot of room to make mistakes either.

It used to be more consistent but last 3 years have kinda sucked and been all over the place. I think we had 80% of the total season's snowfall at squaw before 2nd week in jan last year then it tapered off big time. This year absolutely nothing so far.

Hang in there. Even back in 2010, we had a month long dry/warm spell in January before getting blasted. New storm is supposed to come through second week of January.
