CAIC: Looking across at the avalanche that caught four skiers on February 1, 2021. Their ski tracks are visible to the right of the avalanche, but where they entered into the gully is obscured by trees. Further to the right you can see a second, smaller avalanche, that released sympathetically to the first.

We reported yesterday that search and rescue crews were still looking for three missing skiers following a backcountry avalanche near Silverton, CO.

The avalanche occurred on Monday, 2/1/21.

NBC News reported earlier this morning that the bodies of the three missing skiers have been recovered, and identified.

Seth Bossung, Andy Jessen, and Adam Palmer were prominent members in the town and county of Eagle, CO. They will be missed.

Our thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
