12/26/07: Snowstruck - In the Grip of Avalanches

Salt Lake City, UT – This past weekend, Utah saw its first death of the avalanche season. It was just this sort of tragedy that led avalanche expert Jill Fredston to write "Snowstruck." Fredston has said she wanted to understand how her friend Todd died on Alaska's Tincan Mountain "when he had everything to live for." Fredston joined us in January to talk about the repercussions that follow living, working and playing in some of the world's most dangerous places. (Rebroadcast)
