    Unhappy

    Always breaks my heart to hear about these kinds of things.

    Caught this on TV the other day when I was channel surfing...perhaps it's something for us all to consider for when we are in the BC:

    Sad. At least he was a man who understood the risks and lived out the benefit. My thoughts and prayers go out.

    I've got good friends in the Boat that knew Mike. Condolances to them and the family. RIP Mike, RIP.

    Hey Mangs, let's be sure keep safe out there.

    I was in the 'boat when this went down. Got back from a day on the mountain on tuesday and flipped on the news...so sorry for those involved.

    I don't know about that, with all due respect to those involved:

    1) Obviously, 3 people and only 1 shovel between them

    2) We won't know for awhile and might never know, but I wonder if any analysis was done on a similar aspect or even that slope - maybe a false sense of security since it was south facing?

    3) Sounds like possibly there were two skiers on the slope at one time? Brother above brother?

    Mostly useless speculations...

    again, my condolences....RIP
