Wet clothing would be useless so if it got wet in the avalanche they would have no immediate use for it, and in fact it can kill you in those temperatures. But exactly why they left is part of the mystery the infrasound idea purports to solve. If not that maybe they were afraid the avalanche might not be completely over, and left until they were sure it was? We can only speculate about why they left the tent, which is still a mystery.
Then would they not stay and repair their lifesaving tent and retrieve their clothing inside?
So you have heard the explanation. I've seen dead animals myself and the soft tissues are often the first parts to get eaten. Why they didn't continue to eat? I don't know but is it possible that they ate the soft tissues before they were frozen and once the rest of the tissue froze it was hard to eat? My take on the autopsy report suggests that the tongue was eaten before it was frozen.
I must have missed the so many times it was explained? Do you mean animals? That really makes no sense to me. What animals that would not take in the winter more than an eye on a couple and a tongue including the floor of the mouth in one?
Animals that come across food would surely continue to eat. it would be clear if animals had eaten these parts, why would that not be noted clearly?

I think the infrasound theory is a possibility, but is not all inclusive. That does not explain the weird broken bones and missing tongue and eyes from one of the young ladies. Just wanted to share. Have a great day!
Indeed. So I would say this remains a mystery.
Take a look at this autopsy report of the bodies : www.ermaktravel.com...
They all died very violent deaths. particularly the young woman Ludmila Dubinina. Two of the men suffered injuries conducive with a fall - they were found under a tree, and all of them had numerous injuries common in hand to hand fighting.
The radiation story is a myth, as is the broken bones with no skin abrasions. I believe these people died fighting each other for their clothes - as result of intense cold, or they were attacked by another group, likely Russian special forces in the area.
The idea that wind did it is just absurd, I would give this guy's book a miss
The most obvious explanation – an avalanche – could have caused the deaths, but does not account for one of the central mysteries.
Anatoly Shumkov, a student who had camped out nearby on the same night of Feb. 2 with a separate expedition, described seeing a shining light floating down slowly over the Ural mountain range.
Shumkov’s recollections are quoted on an online project devoted to the Dyatlov Pass incident, created by Dmitry Romashko.
Military search team members in the area also went on to describe strange lights in the sky, according to data gathered by Romashko.
The phenomenon was further noted by local indigenous groups in the area, according to author and hiking expert Yevgeny Buyanov.
It was not my source but I did read all the autopsies, why do none mention radiation on the bodies?
So you gave me more to read..thanks.
