Trouts Fly Fishing would like to offer our condolences to the families and friends of the five outdoor enthusiasts and industry professionals who were killed this weekend in the avalanche on Loveland Pass.
From the Denver Post:
“The five men killed Saturday in Colorado's deadliest avalanche in 50 years were participants in a backcountry snowboarder event called the Rocky Mountain High Backcountry Bash. They were representatives and founders of snow-sport companies, guides, avalanche experts and veteran backcountry travelers, gathering in the normally safer spring season to celebrate backcountry snowboarding, raise money for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center and test the newest gear.”
