Australian Gully, where I have heard they are primarily looking, is no place for anyone to be. If you're thinking about skiing or boarding there, think about a couple of things. One, it's legend for avalanches and debris torrents.(I've heard a couple of these on Strachan trips over the years) Two, it's named after someone who died there. Three, there are a number of waterfalls hidden to you as you descend- one is about 30m tall, I understand. Your only hope in getting out of there are the NSR guys working hard to save your ass.
Of course, this is nothing new....
I'd like to add that I hope he's OK, too...
