This article shows the danger in off trail skiing, I would recommend this article to anyone who likes to go skiing.
This article talks about cousins, who in the Banff National Park, got buried under the snow by a huge avalanche. They would have died, but surprisingly there was a rescue just 1 hour away. They were off trail skiing and never thought that something bad would happen to them. These cousins loved to off trail ski because of the freedom and travel through the new snow.
I liked this article because I thought that it showed that skiing is sometimes not just about skiing itself people like it because of the adventure you get from skiing, and even when you think things are safe there is always a danger.
