Damn, got a certified hero on our hands. Much respect CT. If I ever run into you at berthoud or loveland I'll definitely have a cold beer in the cooler for ya; and probably something green as well.

Saving skiers...replacing ripped off bindings..damn peeps, what's next?...maybe some world peace?

In all seriousness, CB you are the man, so stoked for all involved.

And by the way BCrider stated, "that db DG"... That's funny shit right there.

Nice work CT! Make sure you contact CAIC with your story if you haven't already.


Lots of tales of luck coming out of avalanche incidents lately. Hope people's luck doesn't start running out. Be smart out there people.

After thinking about this a bit more, I'm curious.

If he hadn't been in front of you, would that have been you buried by yourself?

We indeed chose different lines and my two lines held just fine. He entered the pass from one of the Loveland BC gates. The spot I rode actually held a TUBER who pretty much center punched the whole slope into a rock garden down below. :shock: :shock: This happened like 10-15 minutes after we rode down to the road.
I hope she is ok, they ended up using flight for life and took her to the hospital.

easy access spots like this can create some interesting scenarios :nononno:

GREAT JOB !!! Its one thing to be in the right place, but to find the victim who wasnt wearing a beacon , then dig them out solo is a bit beyond reality my friend. Whats in all avalanche courses are written as best case. I dont think even an instructor can follow the book better than you did. Not only did you save one life, you also touched many as a death over the Holiday season would have changed many peoples lives forever.

You are the Man Sir!
