Avalanches claim two more lives in BC


More bad/sad news from British Columbia. A skier and snowboarder have died in avalanches, this time at Whistler Blackcomb. The Globe and Mail has the details: Two men killed in Whistler avalanches.

Prior to the New Year's tragedies, eight snowmobilers were killed in an avalanche near Fernie, BC.

I'll stick to dog sledding in winter, like last year in Norway
