Whether it is feeling that you're safe, the collection of data through observation or just not going, backcountry travel has a ton of risks. I don't know if I've always made the best decisions, but they certainly haven't been the worst. I doubt Carver made any worse decisions than me. He was just unlucky to hit snow that was weaker than the surrounding area. I can't help but think: that could have been me! The best I can say is be careful out there! My thoughts and prayers are with the Carver family.
