This backcountry skier went for a serious ride in an avalanche off Carson Pass, CA yesterday.
“Had just skied the middle moon coolie on roundtop, traversed out of the apron skiers right above winimmucca lake, ended up taking a ride and losing a pole. Friend of mine on a nearby slope also took a ride today, I suspect he will report it also.” – sierraavalanchecenter.com
