High winds today are preventing a helicopter from recovering the bodies of two avalanche victims at Turnagain Pass. Two Anchorage men died snowmachining in the area Friday. A third victim survived the slide. Successfully navigating avalanche terrain is difficult work, even for snow safety professionals. But Alaskan Sean Dewalt is hoping free classes he’s offering around the state will give outdoor enthusiasts the tools they need to stay safe.
