All the talk about skiing/ boarding lately.. this isn't much of a concern for most East Coast areas, but a great read:

Avalanches seem dangerous. They should ban them.

We banned the really fast ones that use allot of snow but some how they still keep killing people.

Interesting read. All experienced/professional skiers; most all of them had misgivings but nobody wanted to be 'that guy'. Some parallels to the riding world.

Very cool read.

On a side note......back in 2000, I rode my bicycle across the country. We rode out of Seattle and out Route 2, Stevens Pass Highway, and our first night was spent camping at a school in Skykomish. Day 2 of our ride, we headed east on Route 2 and rode up over Stevens Pass and down in to Leavenworth. Stopping up top of Stevens Pass was something I will always remember. Even though it was June, there was still a bit of snow up at that elevation. The ride down into Leavenworth was crazy, too....several of our group of cyclists hit the 50mph mark!!

Last year was terrible in CO because of the warm unique conditions; a bunch of people died and most that were killed were all very experienced patroller's\backcountry skiers. Avalanches are no joke.
