Split Avy Claims Two Skiers

Sobering and heartbreaking news: Powder Magazine is reporting the deaths of two Sierra skiers, Kip Garre and Allison Kreutzen, whose bodies were found in a pile of avalanche debris yesterday morning near Split Mountain. According to rescuers, it appears the pair were climbing Split's east couloir with the intention of skiing it when a large avalanche began about 2/3 of the way up the couloir, sweeping them down. My deepest condolences to Kip and Allison's friends and family.
