Default Ed La Chapelle skis into heaven

To the ski community,,,Ed LaChapelle who is considered to be the grandfather
of American avalanche research died thursday in Silverton, CO while skiing.
I took my first avy class from him in 1986 and was always impressed by his
good nature and love of the mountains. He will be missed....

sad news indeed. I have first editions of many of his publications,
but never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. a big loss to
the community indeed.
