    I’ve skied a fair amount around Chair; such good snow and amazing terrain. But it gets super loaded and is still Central CO snowpack to deal with. After the slide video from Thursday in Marble, it would seem prime to trigger something of size… Scary and sad.

    Wondering if this was a group with a Chair subdivision owner or an outside group that hoofed it in.

    ^^^ yeah, a summit descent of Chair is super high on my list, I know a couple people that would probably help me with access. And agreed that Marble seemed pretty active recently. People (including myself) have been teeing off the past couple of days on big lines around here in a similar snowpack.

    RIP and condolences to friends and family. I already know I have some common acquaintances.

    That photo above is gnarly, but the last photo in the CAIC report is the one that really scares me.

    That thing ran a long fucking way... from this photo I'm curious to hear where they were when they got caught.

    We skied inbounds today but a lot of big lines had gone down near Telluride the last few days too, people are definitely getting after it.

    RIP.

    Same. That photo looks a lot more like a standard CO crap persistent slab that really wasn't that thick for an E face in a high snowfall area... This tidbit from the CBAC: "We're deeply saddened to share the news that Friday's avalanche in Marble resulted in a fatality. The slope held an unusually shallow snowpack, likely from frequent avalanche activity this winter. "

    I wish they would have used this image instead of the other one. An airbag saved one of them, but it took him hours to dig himself out. Local peeps. Always sad.

    Do you have more info about them being in mellow terrain below? I saw this pic on CBAC which made me think they triggered it higher.

    Damn. That's a gnarly pic. I had a friend over last night tell me the story as he's friends with those in this party. The story was different than that image makes it look. I really can't confirm nor deny having heard 2nd hand info. I was told one them had a dog with them that died in the slide.......I couldn't imagine taking a dog into that terrain. CAIC/CBAC have been posting images and videos of skier triggered slides around Marble this week. They'd have to be extremely reckless to get into that but obviously someone did? I couldn't imagine anyone surviving a fall through that exposure. RIP

    not to be crass in light of the situation, but how does one get a pomeranian to fuck a husky or vice versa?

    Wow this is sad. Condolences and support to the affected, the deceased, the families, and the survivors.

    Used to ski in that zone a lot… the snowpack and terrain are no joke, as many point out. I have gotten taken in a slide and triggered multiple remote avalanches when I was active there. There is a slide path below chair where I saw the after effects of a “generational” avalanche; I saw an entire forest taken out and the trees stacked 20-30ft high like toothpicks. Marble area gets some of the highest snow totals in the elks; it’s a much different beast than aspen, in my experience.

    I hate to be that guy judging others’ risk tolerance, but I would personally never ski that line unless it was on a corn cycle.

    I’m armchair quarterbacking from a million miles away based solely off info from this thread - but the optics of those people sitting around giving sound bites on TV doesn’t sit right with me while a dog that was brought out into that situation is alive and still missing
