Another slide with a death in a resort today. Another reminder that avy and deep snow danger is real in the resort. Wearing your beacon on deep days is smart and skiing pow with your friends is cool. It's avalanche mitigation not elimination. People die every year in the resort, don't let it be you or your friends.
Shout out to the ski patrollers who put themselves on the line for our enjoyment and make it safe 99% of the time. Really tough start to the season with all these slides and burials. Seems like more than usual but could be par for the course as storms and snow packs change with changing climate.
Ski safe and thoughts out to the families of those who didn't make it at Silver & Squaw.
