#7  T'hell with the snowmobile!  I'm gonna be taking chances with my LIFE, and other lives who follow, by setting track up risky routes today!
#8  OMG!!  Id have to hike another 200'!?

 #11 , I don't think it will run today .
The most recent response I've received at the RED ZONE deposition area , #12 , There's not enough snow up there to reach the highway .   
     My favorite , while 7 machines and skiers sitting on 5' of fresh debris .
#13 , Its already run , don't be anti social and park at the gun tower safe zone . They would all be involved in an avy. accident with injuries and lost eqpt. that day. Another group in Blue lk. zone with a dog , triggered and hit a skier below ,  with loss of eqpt. 1 sledder death at Harts Pass . 2 more skiers would be hit the next day while trying to recover gear. B.T.W. the avy rateing those days was... EXTREEM.  Maybe it should be called EXTREEM PARKING EXPOSURE FUN ZONE ! I guess there  was enough snow to reach them those days .
   #14... Powder Feevvvrrrr.....         Roll Eyes       X

#10. I'm a paid commercial avy instructor/ guide and i do not have to practice what i teach. (at least i think they teach safety protocols, but i remember all to well that oregon accident that left a junior guide and one client killed and other clients seriously injured)


#9. I'm with my guide.

Sounds like you suffer from the Previous Experience Trap, never made a mistake before, why start now?

Good2Go already determined that the snow is stable by his assessment from the bottom of the run.

Is there a map of avalanche red zones along the Hwy 20 corridor so I know where to park my rented snow machine?

       Good Dr. ,  Check the D.O.T. N.C. page. There's an overview showing all the avy. paths.  They are also marked with red and green reflective on orange poles.    Xmtnr.
