    In case anyone missed Craig's column in the Sunday ADN about all these avalanches.... it's a very good read with some fundamental points about beacons.

    The front page of the same issue has this story on the second avalanche that buried the skier. That is one lucky SOB, but it's also clear that the beacon made a huge difference.
