Colorado's second avalanche fatality of the season occurred on January 13, 2013 in an area south of the town of Marble. The avalanche happened in the Raspberry Creek drainage which is part of the Raggeds Wilderness area. Four backcountry skiers were descending steep westerly aspect terrain off the Marble Peak Ridge Sunday afternoon. The fourth skier triggered a soft slab and was buried and killed in the resulting slab avalanche. We will post more information when it is available. Our thoughts go out to friends and family of the victim.
