    Buried Alive: Bruce Tremper Shares His Avalanche Story

    Episode Highlights:

    4:10: Tremper was almost literally born with skis on his feet.
    5:15: Skiing is a religious experience for Tremper.
    7:20: Tremper got a job in 1978 installing and building the Pierre’s Knob lift at Bridger Bowl, Montana.
    9:15: Before the lift opened to the public, Bruce had to ski the line by himself and it was a stormy, snowy day.
    10:20: This is the story of how “Tremper’s Run” at Bridger Bowl got its name.
    11:00: Tremper made a terrible mistake, “oops I forgot.”
    12:10: Tremper decided to cut across an avalanche chute. He thought he could outsmart the avalanche.
    13:00: He put his skis on and went zooming across the top of the starting zone.
    14:00: The snow fractured 40 feet above Tremper.
    15:45: Tremper grabbed onto a tree as he was getting pounded by the avalanche, but lost his grip and went rocketing down the slope.
    16:35: He went more than 1,000 feet and snow was everywhere. Tremper couldn’t breathe.
    17:35: “I’m going to die.”
    18:00: Bruce started swimming for the surface. He started slowing down.
    19:20: It felt like concrete.
    20:00: Both skis were completely broken.
    20:30: This was a huge wake up call to Tremper.
    21:44: Tremper was a cocky young kid and green with avalanches — a typical avalanche victim.
    22:50: Tremper wanted to know everything about avalanches and he spent his life studying them.
    23:45: Tremper is blown away by the overwhelming power of avalanches.
    25:00: Avalanches have grabbed ahold of Tremper, and have never let him go.

    Thanks for sharing that. Worth a listen, but do yourself a favor and fast forward through everything the host has to say. HFS is that guy annoying. I would rather hear nails on a chalkboard than his bullshit.
    Kill you children, kill your grandchildren (it's TGR, you fucking despicable breeders are old), then kill yourself. Remember to get your head centered in front of the shotgun. Thanks!

    The truth doesn't care about your feelings.

    Nobody has the right to go through life without being offended by the words and actions of others.

    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.
