REPORT: Father killed by avalanche while with three teenage sons in Colorado

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center has released their full report related to a fatal avalanche that took place on Berthoud Pass on December 26, detailing what happened in the moments around the deadly slide.

According to the report, a father and his three teenage sons had left Winter Park earlier that morning before driving to the top of Berthoud Pass.

Upon entering the ‘Nitro Chute’ area above the pass, the three sons – one with a split-board, one with a snowboard, and one with skis – started to build a jump while their father started to ride laps in the area on his snowboard.
