Snowboarder Triggered Fatal Utah Avalanche, Report Says
[link to www.foxnews.com]

I don't know if the guy did anything wrong but you would have to feel bad if you caused something that killed someone ... right?

SALT LAKE CITY The Utah Avalanche Center says a snowboarder triggered the avalanche that killed a 27-year-old woman who was skiing at Snowbird.

According to a report posted on the UAC Web site, about 300 people crossed the starting zone and/or skied the slope that failed Dec. 14 on the High Traverse of Mount Baldy.

Investigators say the slide started when a male snowboarder was crossing the slope around 12:20 p.m. The snowboarder was not caught in the avalanche.

Witnesses say Heather Gross, a University of Utah graduate student, was climbing up the slope to retrieve a lost ski when she was buried by the avalanche. She died later at a hospital

Why were they being allowed to ski and snowboard in an avalanche risk area?

I mean, certain slopes with the correct angles are required for an avalanche in general, right? Then melting conditions with enough snow involved...

We kind of have an idea what the correct conditions are, you think someone would have told them...

And all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "save us!"

That's so sad and tragic. Sounds like the snowboarder was not at fault. Poor victim, and poor snowboarder. I know he must feel really awful. Pray for him, and the family of the victim.

I lived in Salt Lake City for a few years and climbed the mountains around Alta. Once we climbed over the wrong side of the mountain and it took hours struggling through 6 feet of powder to get back to our cars.

Re: Snowboarder Triggered Fatal Utah Avalanche, Report Says
it's probably the boarders fault.
but then again he might never have seen the chick at the bottom of the shute.
i've boarded for years and have even been in avalanches too.
people die on the ski hill and backcountry every year.
