‘Avalanche terrain trap’ near Vail steals two lives

Community reviving avalanche education for new snowbikers
Looking up at the avalanche area near Vail where two snowbikers were killed on Feb. 15. The riders came out of the trees into the bottom of the slope near this point. The avalanche swept the men into a deep gully and they were buried under large amounts of snow and debris.
