    Some of the instagram stars are nailing full on slide terrain and it looks like premo pow. People going to push it after seeing that.

    I had the same question. I have a few common-ass names in mind.

    I wouldn't be surprised if one of them is Fritz Sperry - at least a Facebook star in the Colorado Backcountry Ski group.

    I'm not impressed with the example he sets for impressionable people.

    What happened at Vail yesterday?

    "According to our initial investigation, the deceased slipped through the seat of the chair lift and his ski coat got caught up in the chair. The coat ended up going up around his head and neck area putting his neck in a position that compromised his airway.

    I think is is the same situation of when the guy was hanging upside down with his pants around his ankles. That situation happened when the chair came around the lower bull-wheel with seat folded up, customer sat down and went straight through the seat frame, and dangled upside down.
    Sounds like the same thing happened again. This guy "slipped through the seat of the chair lift and his ski coat got caught up in the chair". It took a few minuted for them to reverse the lift, and to untangle him, and they attempted to perform CPR.

    They have not been very forthcoming with the details which has made for a bit of confusion cuz we know something happened and they are not being forthcoming. Rumors swirling. Blue sky closed again today. Sad news regardless.

    Bummer for the guy in Vail.

    Did a Backcountry tour in my neighborhood this afternoon.
    Shit snow, rock hard wind crust over storm slab.
    That scary moderate is right... I couldn't get it to move at all, anywhere... But digging thru the crust revealed a huge storm slab on top of facets.

    If it goes, it'll go big.

    My final long range snowfall forecast for the season. Decent pattern for Colorado going forward with snow in the short term, and then potentially some more heavy falls for Sunday week and beyond.

    This is the extent of my social media so luckily it doesn't affect my decision making. That said, I challenge those clowns to rationalize there choices and explain why they are right and the avalanche forecasters are wrong.

    If you are just going for it and that is a risk you are willing to take...own it. Using your education, knowledge and experience to get closer and closer to the edge is a strategy that has proven the fair in the last few month.

    I ain't trying to preach but lucky can and does run out. The morgue has plenty of proof.

    Stay safe!

    Yea a lot of us are the opposite of impressed with that guy. Especially those of us who have skied with him. I told him what I thought. He blocked me. He is more arrogant than he used to be and unable to take criticism. He IS the human factor.
