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.

The spot I rode actually held a TUBER who pretty much center punched the whole slope into a rock garden down below. 😯 😯 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: December 31, 2013 at 9:46 pm #673580 chronicracing 162 PostsStrong work cometogether. :doobie:Here’s to bringing positive vibes into the New Year! :guinness: January 1, 2014 at 3:06 am #673581 keffler 319 PostsYea Eric!

January 1, 2014 at 4:14 pm #673583 TEX 2486 PostsGREAT 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!
