On Sunday Keith, Melanie, Ashley, and I went skiing up on Vail Pass after meeting up with Chris and Lauren and their friend Andy. Avy danger was moderately high, so we played it safe on some pretty mellow slopes. We found a kicker that Keith and I hit several times, apparently going for the best crash.
All the while, unbeknownst to us, a snowmobile accident has taken place only a few hundred yards from us. When we tried to leave the parking lot around 1:30, the exit was blocked by an army of emergency vehicles. This morning Keith looked up the accident online, which gave us a clue to what had happened (news brief).
