    3 Killed near Stevens Pass.

    3 Dead, up to 8 Missing in Washington Avalanche - ABC News

    The Pic is the 7th Heaven run at Stevens Pass. One of my favorites...one of the steepest in the country.



    Believe it or not...ya ya.. I know..you guys NEVER believe what I say.. But my oldest friend Dave taught me to ski when I was about twelve..he and his whole family were into racing and ski jumping... and Dave took me up to the top of the peak pictured the third time I had skis on my feet. It wasn't even like skiing..It was like falling straight down with little corrections to avoid hitting the tops of trees.. Dave didn't believe in "baby steps"... :lol: :lol:

    Hope they enjoyed their lives!
    They were skiing out of bounds of the resort.
    But, afterall, they were experts.......and I emphasize the word, were.
