How Could a Trail Fit for a Toddler Be the Site of a Deadly Disaster?

January 21, 2022

According to the CAIC report of the incident, the slab of snow that killed Overseen, Nash, and Valerie was about 370 feet wide, ten feet deep, and 100 vertical feet long. It broke free from a snowfield on a slope that was between 35 and 38 degrees—that’s the pitch of an intermediate run at your local ski resort. The slab then rushed down to where Overseen and Nash were standing, on a 20-degree grade—the same pitch of a typical bunny slope. Outside Online
