    Hi Wfgodot, Micci Stella and Ms Modstress SWMNBN, this is so sad.
    God Bless all of their families and I too pray for the 8 still missing.

    When I heard this on the news tonight I thought how awful to be in the way of an avalanche, helpless to it's speed to get out of its way.


    ETA: The 8 are OK and were able to get help. From the link above: " . . Eight other skiers also were caught up in the avalanche, and were initially reported as missing. But they were able to free themselves and call for help, Larson said".

    So sad... Specially for their families...

    Even though everyone going of slope, even well prepared, knows the risk...

    I am just surprised that they went with avalanche warning.... Lord please give the family and friends strength to get thru all that...

    Blessings and freedom to all

    Micci
