When I was Cat Skiing at Monarch, one of the guys that was with us told us a story about his avalance beacon. He was skiing in France at the same place that Doug Combs died and he put his name on his beacon and then it got stolen from him. The next day a ski patroller gave it back to him because the guy who stole died in an avalance the day before.
I was driving up to Tahoe a couple weeks ago on 50 and saw a car stopped in the middle of the road with his entire hood crushed in by a boulder! The thing was probably 5'x5'x2' - talk about hitting a brick wall
