    Wow

    That is as raw and real as it gets

    !

    Lou Dawson mentions

    Lastly, did I gather that a Whippet might have saved the writer’s life? I know of a number of incidents such as that with Whippets, including my son Louie’s. Come to think of it, is it possible that Whippets may have saved more lives in avalanches than Avalungs?

    about this incident in WildSnow.com see the comments http://www.wildsnow.com/4612/marble-quarry-road-avalanches/ on Wild Snow.

    There is a lot to learn and digest from this incident. Sad but well worth to read.

    A lot of good stuff in this part of the forum. I must say I never check it as too low on the screen it never really popped out.

    We should prolly embed the replies to the same avy story on another thread/section in here if that is feasible to combine them together.
