If you haven't experienced the NYT multimedia article:

Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek

Do yourself a favor and take the time to live it.

http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2012/snow-fall/#/?part=tunnel-creek

Not only is this a great piece of journalistic art, it is graphic description of how even "experts" can put themselves in situations where there are no second chances.

Two thumbs up, waaay up.

Best Wishes to all for a fabulous and safe New Year!

I went to the link and watched/read it. Wow!

The Seattle Times recently printed Part 2.

For some reason I didn't catch that this was in Washington until I watched the flyover video that showed Steven's Pass -- I was there just last week, and two people had died that day nearby when a tree fell on their SUV. It was my first time snowboarding and I had an amazing time, but this story is all the more real to me now.

Now I have to go finish reading the article.
