Two days after skiing the Amora Vida Couloir on the South Teton, a fellow skier and friend, Wray Landon was killed in an avalanche while skiing the same route. It has taken me a little while to be able to look at the footage, and a few tears were shed while making this video and thinking about Wray. This video is dedicated to him…thanks. -Steve

I was recently visiting the Friends of Wray Facebook page and noticed that some photos from his recovered camera were posted. For me, it was quite an experience…looking at the photos, including one’s from the day of the accident. I found it interesting that I liked the first and last photos on the camera the best…they are posted below. Also, for those that are interested in the technical side of the accident, you may want to look at THIS post by Brady Johnson on Mountain Project. Brady was with Wray on the day of the accident. Thanks again. -Steve

The first picture on Wray’s camera was of good friend Zahan Billamoria taking a picture of one
of the sunset during a memorable dusk-patrol after work.

The last picture was of Nathan Brown skiing the Southeast Face
of the South Teton, moments before the accident.
