Re: 4 skiers die in avalanche accidents ( 3 in GR & 1 in BE )

The accident in Grindelwald was a 16 year old expert skier who was on his own in an area where he had been the day and the week before with others. He was equipped with avalanche security, and 16-year-old decision making skills... It was so very sad.

Perhaps those avalanche security devices give people a false sense of security - thinking 'no prob, they'll find me in time'?
