Update and other events
A potentially completely different event (paranormal?) occurred on Monday March 10th on what would have been my brothers Birthday exactly 4 weeks
after the slide that killed him.
Nearly every year for the past 20+ years my brother would go skiing on his Birthday. The first place he learned was Crystal Mountain near Mt. Rainier
in Washington state.
Chair 6 or the Campbell Basin lift was by far our favorite for skiing the best snow and we pretty much skied nearly every line over the years with
several of our favorites that we did over and over memorizing every rock formation along with each tree and how they appeared with different levels of
I should of been up there on Monday to pay my respects to my brother, but I wasn't and at the end of the day the ski patrol decided to blast some snow
loose and the avalanche grew large enough to move the bottom station of the lift 15 feet off it's base and close for the season.
Was my brother sending another message or was it just another strange coincidence? His favorite lift, on his Birthday March 10th, 4 weeks after his
death in an avalanche on February 10th.

Here's the pubic final report for the slide that my brother lost his life in on February 10th.

occurred 4 weeks later)
According to the report, it was a second party that triggered the slide. My brothers party had skirted around the bowl with the cornice, because they
were aware of the danger. Again, it was both a mistake and my brothers companion's idea that led them here. The hike out would of been hours - in
ski boots no way. The second party just blasted through the cornice in the middle of the bowl and dropped an avalanche on the party below. After my
brother was buried, everyone including my brothers friend was gone off the mountain after 15 minutes. I would never leave my buried companion alone
on the mountain especially when others had gone to call for help. There were three unhurt people and only one needed to go for help. Two could of
searched. I would of dug with or without shovel, with skis, poles, or the bloody stumps of my hands if necessary to save someone.
He was found against some trees under just 4 and 1/2 feet of snow.
The news media had reported his partner had hiked out and obtained help. According to this report by investigators it was the second party that had
triggered the avalanche that made the 911 contact. Why did the MSM get it wrong?
The same slide occurred in the same location 3 times in the past six weeks - it was an avalanche highway. Perfect place for...
