    I love the outdoors as well. I have taken Avalanche training classes and love to back country ski. I am sad that this happened but strongly feel that coincidences don't happen.

    Living life on the couch is no way to live. He was probably heading to safe terrain if he was that experienced. He probably knew what the conditions were. Clearly, for it to come down on him like that meant he was being called home.

    This life is a test. It is not the reward. The reward comes later.

    Let's all remember that we are here to learn how to love each other.

    "The family of a man killed in an avalanche over the weekend says the slide was a freak accident."

    The avalanche hazard was in the orange or black in most areas throughout the weekend.
