Alpine Meadows Avalanche

I’ve heard people talk about the horrific avalanche that struck Alpine Meadows Ski Resort in 1982.  With the recent massive snowfall, a few people have mentioned conditions this year are similar to those that led up to the event.  However, I’d never read a thorough article on it…until today.  It’s a chilling account, and makes me realize that wearing an avy beacon inbounds on a powder day isn’t such a bad idea.
