Default Avalanche Death on Paulina Peak

Sad day for the Thomas family, owners of the Paulina Lake Lodge. They lost their son Kyle, while he was snowmobiling and got caught in a snow slide.
Here is a pic from Kyle's FB page, of him and his daughter, on top of Paulina.



"The avalanche was estimated at about 200 yards wide and 75 to 100 feet long, with a debris field estimated at 3-5 feet in depth, Shelton said. It occurred on the north face of the 7,989-foot peak, at an elevation of about 7,300 feet, on a slope of about 35 degrees, he added.

Sheriff’s deputies, Oregon State Police and U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officers arrived in the area around 5:45 p.m., with SAR units starting to arrive around 20 minutes later."

SO tragic for the family,
and for the two riders that were with him Sunday.
I know your grief is so hard,
Strength and better inner peace to these people so sad!

I know how it feels to lose a friend. Prayers sent to the family and friends. Lot of long days ahead...
