CAIC Says Deadly Avalanche Could Have Been Prevented

The April 20th avalanche near Loveland Pass that killed five people was the worst of its kind in more than fifty years.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center released a final report this week on what may have happened. Much of the report is based on the sole survivor of the slide, Jerome Boulay of Crested Butte.
