January 8th Backcountry Update
A reminder to stay safe! A ‘Moderate’ snowpack is no joke. Learn from the latest backcountry mishaps to make smart, safe decisions.
This past week we have seen the temperatures rise and more ski tracks in the backcountry. There was an avalanche in Bear Creek on January 2nd in which a snowboarder was caught, but luckily came out unscathed. On January 6th, a skier was caught and killed in an avalanche on Kendall Mountain just above Silverton, Colorado.
These events are important reminders that anything can happen, and a ‘Moderate’ snowpack is no joke. Our condolences go out to the family of Olivia Buchanan.
Please stay safe out there!
