Ken Wylie presents Buried, about the tragic avalanche released from Tumbledown Mountain in 2003, which resulted in the death of seven. Wylie delves deep into the human factors responsible for putting people in harm’s way. Hosted by Jamie Clarke.
On January 20, 2003, at 10:45 a.m., a massive avalanche released from Tumbledown Mountain in the Selkirk Range of British Columbia. Tonnes of snow carried 13 members of two guided backcountry skiing groups down the 37-degree incline of a run called La Traviata and buried them. After a frantic hour of digging by remaining group members, an unthinkable outcome became reality. Seven people were dead. Buried is the assistant guide’s story.
Host Jamie Clarke is a Canadian adventurer, author, filmmaker, entrepreneur and inspirational speaker based out of Calgary. Clarke has summited Mt. Everest twice, climbed the Seven Summits, and ridden camels across The Empty Quarter of Arabia.
