Dang that sucks

Very, very sad to hear about this.

Always remember to check the avalanche forecast here:

And of course learn to identify warning signs on your own.

But didnt he read the avy reports or look outside at the weather and snow conditions?
Its been ultra-dangerous for several days.
Why should SAR teams spend lots of resources rescuing fools?

Please don't be a Captain Hindsight...Trying to learn from an accident is one thing, but making blind assumptions and chewing out the person(s) involved without knowing specific details is dumb.

Condolences to family and everyone involved.
