"The family of a man killed in an avalanche over the weekend says the slide
was a freak accident." The avalanche hazard was in the orange or
black in most areas throughout the weekend.
I'm so happy that these people have their faith the help them through.
Their young son has learned well. Sympathy to all who knew and loved him! My
thoughts and prayers are will you all.
I love the outdoors as well. I have taken Avalanche training classes and love
to back country ski. I am sad that this happened but strongly feel that
coincidences don't happen. Living life on the couch is no way
to live. He was probably heading to safe terrain if he was that experienced.
He probably knew what the conditions were. Clearly, for it to come down on him
like that meant he was being called home.This life is a test. It is
not the reward. The reward comes later.Let's all remember that
we are here to learn how to love each other.
the back country is dangerous. not worth risking your life for. stay on the
