The recent tragedy of an inbound avalanche fatality at Palisades Tahoe is a solemn reminder of the natural disaster possibilities in our region. Moonshine Ink sends many thoughts of comfort to the family of Kenneth Kidd.

With Kidd and many snow recreators in mind, this month’s You Asked. They Answered. is focused on avalanche education and awareness.

Since the winter of 2009/10, there have been 18 inbound avalanche fatalities across the U.S. (compared to 366 avalanche fatalities in total) as of press time.
