    reports are still sketch but 2 men, 2 women heli-dropped today. one was caught in a slide and carried off a cliff and buried. died on scene.

    the rumor going around town is that it's Dave Treadway, however this is currently unconfirmed.

    rumours about who passed away should definitely not be posted.

    According to the Canadian Avalanche Centre, the latest fatality takes the March avalanche death toll in B.C. to six.

    I'd just like to confirm it is not Dave Treadway. He was in the party but is ok.

    You will be missed bro! One of the many reasons I moved up here to pursue the dream.
    RIP.

    alias here.

    I keep thinking of something to say, but I'm coming up short. Maybe tomorrow. Miss you buddy.

    If you haven't talked to a friend in a while, now would be a good time. I kept meaning to call, but hadn't in a while. I'm bummed about that.

    Can add that it wasnt Dave.. but out of respect for the family and friends it might be a good idea to let people find out the true facts first hand from people that were there.. rather than speculate, or post confirmed stuff on the internet. The media trolls forum boards, imagine finding out a loved one had passed away from the news or on TV rather than a phone call or visit from a friend. At least give it a day maybe, this community is super tightknit. Just think how you'd want your friends and family to find out if it was you.

    Super sad events today.. kinda feeling dumbstruck at it all.

    Wow, super sad. He was perhaps the nicest and most outgoing ripper I've met. One hell of a charger that would never let you know it.

    Sad and scary. Makes we wonder if I'll make it to 30, 40, or let alone 60.
