“The death of snowboarder Michael Kazanjy on the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming on Thursday was the latest example of how out-of-bounds boarding or skiing can trigger deadly avalanches.

Kazanjy, 29, was beginning a downhill descent at the top of a snowy, back country trail not groomed or regulated by the resort. He was among thousands of other skiers who will venture into back country territory across the U.S. this winter, seeking less crowded and more exciting terrain.

Kazanjy and his five friends triggered an avalanche on their way down the mountain, setting off a huge slide of snow, according to officials, and Kazanjy was buried. By the time his fellow skiers dug him out, he was dead.” abcnews.go.com
