Avalanche Fatality on Hatch Peak

Jim Helling died in an avalanche on Hatch Peak on March 19, 2011, a very sad story

His partner was injured in the same slide.

Another group reported skiing the same line earlier on the same day without incident.  It can be a fine line between life and death, joy and sorrow.  Let us learn from this accident.
