    No.... The first avalanche victim of the season. It happened on the Laub in Engelberg. More info in this local article: http://www.luzernerzeitung.ch/nachrichten/zentralschweiz/obwalden/in-e...

    RIP

    Sad. Condolences to friends and family. The Laub is deceptive in ease of access.

    Yes, and the grassy surface is a perfect sliding layer...

    Again...........an avalanche victim in Engelberg in early season. After a tepid start of the season and not much snow below 2500 meter, two snowboarders set off an avalanche at Lange Wand, the south facing side above the ski slopes in between Stand and Trubsee. The temperatures were rising and SLF gave a Level 3 warning out, like Morris's warning a few days ago. Unfortunately he was right!!!!
    People be careful at the start of the season!
