Woman describes 'strange calm' after being buried by snow
About 20 years ago the University of Utah (I think it was them, or someone
associated with them) came up with this really great film about avalanche
training. They interviewed about 20 avalance experts. One noted that every
location has a different status so you can't stick a snowman at the mouth
of the canyon with a smile or a frown and a gauge to tell everyone whether the
canyon is safe or not. One person observed, "If your skiing buddy is
telling you all these stories about avalance near misses, you should question if
maybe you should be with someone else."One extreme downhill
skier had a great advice for avalanches, "I point my skies downhill and
outrun them." (Good idea for him, bad idea for the normal people.)
Glad she was rescued, but how much does it cost local government to
"subsidize" thrill seekers risky adventures?
Kitenoa,It costs a lot less than ObamaCare for all the couch
potatoes who never go and enjoy the mountains.
