Skiers Beware

It may be early in the season, but skiers in the Crested Butte area are already being warned of avalanche danger.  Two skiers triggered a slide over the weekend, but neither of them were hurt.  The Crested Butte Avalanche Center says one was carried hundreds of feet, but was able to stay on top of the rushing snow.  Backcountry riders are reminded to keep the proper gear with them.
