@patriot:"I do wish there was some sort of LARGE warning sign
posted..."There are signs... the signs are snow on the steep
slopes. Stay off. Ski and snow-shoe on the flat land away from steep
slopes.Condolences to the family. This is truly a tragedy.
My deepest condolences to the Cox family in the passing of their daughter. I
mourn with you, having also experienced the unexpected death of one of my
daughters three years ago. I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, for
His Atonement, and for the hope of the resurrection. May God bless you at this
most difficult time. Love you dearly.
This story breaks my heart! When my sister and I were students at BYU, we would
snowshoe and cross-country ski in Midway, Utah (just up Provo Canyon)at the
Wasatch Mountain Golf Course. It is a gigantic and beautiful course groomed for
cross-country skiing in the winter and it was a wonderful venue for snow-shoeing
as well. Also, there was never any danger of avalanches.
What an amazing life, she made great contributions in a short time. The
experience in Romania is very inspiring.
She was always up for anything you had in mind. If it was going snowshoeing or
just going for a walk or doing just absolutely anything, she was up for
it.......touched me a lot, this is how I am, I think that she has
not been preserved for this life is a testimony to her eagerness to be up for
more.Her involvement with the children testifying of that readiness to
come home to Christ.I am sure this was a terrible accident, but in the end
it is full of purpose.She knows what she left, but she will also be exited
about the next step for what she was is up to now.Let us be grateful
for such a faith and this gospel, else we could never think beyond our
grief.Forgive me for posting here, I am unrelated, but emotional effected.
She is very blessed now, I know that. She loves them all.If I would know her
state of feelings now, I would say for her " I love you "
This is terribly sad. What a huge loss for the family. Hard to handle things
like this no question regardless of your faith. I do wish there was some sort of
LARGE warning sign posted at Tibble Fork and Aspen Grove and other popular snow
shoe and ski areas reminding people to stay OFF of steep slopes especially those
with no tree cover. These are prime avalanche areas. Every year we have
snowmobiling or back country skiing/snow boarding or snow shoeing on steep
slopes that causes avalanches and takes lives. I just don't think
inexperienced kids know what they are in for before it's too late. Very
sad. It see the same sort of inexperienced thing happen in the summer with
inexperienced kids climbing 12000+ foot peaks in the late afternoon - prime for
