backstory ... more at link ...

Prabhdeep Srawn was a reservist from 2005 to 2011, belonging to the 31 Service Battalion's Hamilton Company and had military training in extreme conditions.


"This is a safe and easy trail to walk, but he had chosen to walk out, on the day he went missing, when a blizzard hit. It threw him off course, and possibly blinded or whited-out the track completely and he couldn't find his way back, "

Well he will probably be found as that's a lot of incentive for people to go out and look for him. A month is a long time though. :(

Possibly not.
If he isn't just missing in (under) the snow, to be found after the thaw, than he will probably be off the side of the rolling tops. People sometimes attempt to drop down to the valley below under adverse conditions, but the sides are extreme alpine scrub for an awful long way. It looks easy - you can see the bottom in places, but getting there is often just not physically possible. People have attempted this before.

If my guess is correct, there is a lesson here. You may be very experienced in one set of conditions, but a total novice in different conditions.

Cheers
