Some brave men unselfishly tried to rescue others, and died in the process

I would have been honored to meet these men

Nine years.

One of my favorite memories of Scott was the time he hiked into the SEKI backcountry to a resupply for an Outward Bound course, and brought in a half dozen pints of Ben & Jerry's (carefully wrapped in dry ice to keep them cold) for the voracious instructors. This was the nature of Scott's view of service to others.

Your memory, and impact on so many others, lives on, Scotty.

wow, 10 years.

I was living in mammoth at the time, working at footloose and was up skiing this day.

I remember a perfect powder day, I was at the Mccoy Station after riding down the face On chair 3, literally feet from where this occurred.

A heavy feeling came over me, and everyone else. Noone knew what was happening but you could feel something wasn't right. Then , a minute later , all mountain ops shut down, and snowmo's and cats started coming from all directions.

That was a rough year for Mammoth, another patroller died in a BC avy, and there was the avalanche on climax which I witnessed from the top of the world.
