Do your homework, be aware in the backcountry..........

Deadly avalanche today near McBride B.C. 5 confirmed dead, human caused slide.

Read Kyle's comment re sled triggering avalanche in North Bowl last weekend.
Stay out of there - Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with.

There was also an avalanche just outside Kicking Horse boundary today that caught 2-3 people in it. No fatalities.

Heard a sledder set one off last week in Baldy north bowl.

Re the McBride Avalanche, I am greatly saddened by the news, but the avalanche risk was "considerable" and warning signs were posted. I have to assume that they had read the warning and chose to ignore it.
