Avalanche Accidents/Fatalities This Season

Postby JohnS » Tue Jan 15, 2008 12:16 pm

Looks like the US and Canada are on a record year for Avalanche Fatalites this season. Seems someone is dying every week. Below is a good place to read reports on what happened and possibly why. It's a bit scary watching the tally go higher every week. When you duck make sure to have your beacon, shovel and probe.

USA Fatalities: 21
Canada Fatalities: 10
Total Fatalities: 31
