i was just up at monashee powder cats, would have been an amazing trip if not for the class 3.5 avi that ripped through and took out our guide and a photographer who worked for monashee.
the avi took them both about 500-600 meters downhill and one was buried a good 1 1/2 to 2 meters below the snow. luckily we were able to dig her out, i was the 2nd person to her with beacons out searching and we were able to probe her on the 3rd or 4th try. she was purple when we got down to her but shortly after we got her some room to breath, she started blinking her eyes but was not communicating at all. luckily the other guide wasnt as deep and was dug out by a few other people in our group.
needless to say, if you are in the backcountry, make sure you are prepared! beacon, probe and shovel WILL save your life!
