Snowcave Practice??
« on: 01/03/03, 12:08 AM »

Hope this isn't some of our folks:

There was talk of this trip on one of the TR threads a month or so ago.  Hope they're ok and just hunkered down in a snowcave.

I hadn't seen your post, Ron, and replied to jhamaker's planned trips post: "After reading the newspaper report today about the 2 missing skiers, I have a bad feeling about this trip. The origin, destination, timing, and party size correspond. The 2 missing skiers started out from Crystal on Saturday, according to the paper, which would have been right at the tail end of the big windstorm and one day before the avalanche in Cement Basin."

Let's hope for the best.

All kidding aside... I'm really glad they're ok.
I'll bet they learned a bunch.  3 extra days.  They're probably chowing down about now.

It's great that they made it, and under their own power too.  A trip report, and maybe they remembered to take some photos?

He indicated that he'd post a TR later.
