Avalanche at Big Red Cats Catches 12, All Survive
One of the members of the party is, at the time of reporting, still in ICU at a hospital in Spokane. So until they’re released and well, this story can’t quite be labelled as “good news”.
But it’s most certainly makes a case for practicing with your beacon and choosing backcountry partners that know how to react in the case of an avalanche.
This experienced group of 12 was cat-skiing with two guides. The slide broke off, burying 7. But everyone managed to get out alive.
