*Reader caution – the podcast and documentary cover the subject of multiple deaths.

A podcast by Steve House in which he recounts some of the (non traumatic) detail of his involvement in the discovery and rescue / recovery of a large party of ski-tourers on the Haute Route on 29 April 2018. Seven of them died.

Swiss Television recently released a 90 minute documentary about the incident – view it HERE (if you click the ‘settings’ cog wheel you can translate the subtitles to your language).

Difficult but essential listening and viewing for anyone that makes decisions in the mountains.

‘Was it bad luck, human error or recklessness’ ???
