In 2008 46-year-old David Monk was on holiday in Sauze D’Oulx, Italy, with a group of friends.

2. The Luckless Sledneck


According to, Walter, a 43-year-old Fairbanks man was “highmarking” on his snowmobile. This involves driving as far as you can up a pristine slope before the sled gets stuck, and then bombing back down again. Troopers had warned that conditions meant avalanches were likely. Earlier on, Walter had in fact triggered an avalanche and been buried up to his waist. You would have thought that he would have stopped by then. But Walter kept right on revving up and down the hillside until he triggered a second, bigger avalanche which swept down and killed him.
