    Tushar Range avalanche

    Hope this isn't 2065 toyota's group.

    I ride up there a lot and have witnessed many avalanches.

    I would guess the missing person is a recovery

    Another man killed in an avalanche on Saturday near Coalville. That's 4 Utah snowmobilers killed by avalanche this season. I don't snowmobile so, help me understand. Is the rush of going out in fresh powder in the backcountry so overwhelming that the risk of triggering an avalanche is just brushed aside? Seriously, I don't get it. I fatbike as soon as I can after a storm, usually up AF Canyon, so I get wanting to go out. The difference, however, is I'm sticking to upper SR-92 or terrain where there's pretty much zero risk. Every time I go up the canyon in fresh snow, the snowmachines have already beat me to it. Particularly the timber sled's. Those guys go up some crazy terrain when the avy risk is high. Mark my words, some guy on a timber sled will be killed up AF Canyon by avalanche in the next couple of years. They just seem to throw out all caution.
    Are we there yet?
