Lots of avalanche news with the latest storms. You've read about the 11 year old that survived the in-bounds avalanche at The Canyons that killed a Colorado man. A quick check of Avalanche.org shows US fatalities already at 9. Last year's total was 20, so that's one short of 1/2 and we're just entering peak season. Lets not drive that number up. Be careful up there. If you're skiing or riding out of bounds, make sure you know what you're doing and wear a beacon.
