Edgework: This piece from the New York Times about the Tunnel Creek avalanche is one of the great classics of ski mountaineering and backcountry skiing. It is a groundbreaking piece in new media and a serious, sobering story about taking for granted what should never be taken for granted. We first published this piece last year. No, it’s not a film, but it has film embedded in it. It’s worthy of a repeat. Read, learn, enjoy, apply.
