The avalanche danger has been creeping up this year and Rossman dedicates this video to Tony Pardee Siebert, a skier lost just a few weeks ago in an avalanche in Vail. As Johnny takes on the backcountry of Aspen and his home in Breckenridge, you had better believe Tony's memory is not far from his mind.
