articles on the human factors in a recent entrapment

Postby Bob » Sat Dec 21, 2013 9:04 am

Up in Utah recently, pro skier Amie Engerbretson was caught in an avalanche in Grizzly Gulch, a popular sidecountry area in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The slide was caught on video, and went kind of viral. I came across a couple of articles that I thought I'd put up here - one by the victim and another by the (nearly) famous Bruce Tremper, director of the Utah Avalanche Center. I think they make for interesting reading.

A little more about it from the photographer:
