Lesson for snow instructors

An Austrian news site has an article about the aftermath of a severe Avalanche accident that took place January 2005  in St. Anton.

The article (in German) reports that the ski-instructor who led a group of skiers off-piste has now been sentenced in court, 1.5 years after the incident.

Although he was not officially working but just touring with friends he was considered responsible. (He pleaded guilty to misjudging the situation and the avalanche risk.)

At the time of this particular incident I was on the same mountain but on the other side (around the corner as it were).

The last remaining victim was found after several months when the snow receded.
