I have changed the overall theme for the site to a more modern "curve" theme. It will be the one everyone uses from now on, you will not be able to alter it on your own. It will make things a whole lot easier for me to maintain.THNXthe Management

Quote from: JBrochu on December 30, 2013, 07:47:51 PMThe article was correct for both Saturday (pre-accident) and Sunday (post-accident).A chance that the avalanche occur saturday at 5h30, if it was at 7 hours in the evening (tweve hours from both advisory) we won't know which advisory is good!!!I understand. They made the post on saturday to sunday morning... and sunday morning, at seven approximately, the condition change dramatically to moderate and anybody would have been able to go in the cliff.I respect the science behind the advisory and it is a good thing to have it. It is just a tool, but knowing the mitigation technique and practice them is a lot safer than a sign.

Are you suggesting that these hikers somehow had a premonition that the advisory would change from considerable to moderate before it was even posted the following morning so therefore they decided to proceed over the headwall without taking due caution?
(We) were not familiar with Mount Washington at all, so when we came to the split between Lionís Head and Tuckerman Ravine, we decided to take Tuckerman Ravine because thatís where I thought we came from.
