Ski racers Bryce Astle and Ronnie Berlack were training for the U.S. Olympic team in Sölden, Austria, when they ventured away from practice for a little recreational skiing. Unfortunately, the fragile snowpack gave way, and they were caught in an avalanche. Neither survived. Off Piste, a film from the BRASS Foundation, highlights their story and provides some really helpful avalanche advice.
