Avalanche Fatality

A Telluride man killed in a backcountry avalanche has become the fifth person to die in a slide this season.  The Denver Post says 38 year old Nathaniel Soules was an expert skier, equipped with an avalanche airbag which deployed, but appeared to have been damaged.  The avalanche happened outside the Telluride ski area yesterday.
