Default Friend Gets Caught in Avy

My buddy was very lucky this past weekend here in SW Colorado. Climbing where he probably shouldn't have been, a 3' slab of snow broke just below him. He attempted to ride it out, but got knocked off his sled. He pulled his avy bag, and somehow managed to stay on top. We were immediately able to find him, uninjured. Had he been more on the southern end of the slide, he may not have been as lucky. The slab was much thicker on that end, and the broken chunks of the slab were the size of small cars. Me and my other buddy had our GoPros rolling and caught the slide happening. Be careful out there guys and gals.

Wow. Is that the range that is viewable from Moab? Daughter and I were there this past weekend. She asked if sledding was available there. I was not sure.

You are probably thinking of the La Sals. The La Platas are further east in in SW Colorado between Cortez and Durango.
