Stevens Pass Alpine Club would like to express our heart felt condolences to the families, friends and communities of the two young men lost in the Soelden Avalanche on Monday morning. Ronnie Berlack, 20, of Franconia, N.H., and Burke Mountain, Vt., and Bryce Astle, 19, of Sandy, Utah were training as junior members of the US Ski Team near Soelden, Austria. As a community we know how hard these losses can be, and we would like the loved ones of Ronnie and Bryce to know that we are thinking of them during these hard times.
