There are substantial cornices where I have never seen them before in the Wasatch. Just a unique wind patern. Same with Colo?
I am very sorry for the parties affected by this. I am very sorry for the children affected by this. If you’re a parent, buy a big life insurance policy if you ski the back country or kayak. It cost less me less than a new boat or new ski gear for this and at least I know my kids will be taken care of.
Sorry to be preachy. I have a friend who did not do this and died unexpectedly. It has rocked the world of his wife and kids as she has had to deal with getting out and taking care both the home front and making a living through an incredibly bad time
