20 years later, remembering "The big one" avalanche

The Summit Daily has a good 2-part series this weekend on a slide that killed 4 skiers and caught 4 more in 1987. It's an interesting tale of ignoring warning signs, mayhem, destruction and how a small community comes together in an emergency.
Here's a link:

If you happen to be in Summit County tonight, there's a lecture on the slide.

When and Where: 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18; The Village in Breckenridge, Forest Room.
What: Nick Logan and Brad Sawtell of the Summit County Office, Colorado Avalanche Information Center, will present a slide show on the Peak 7 slide that killed four people in 1987.
