More on the Mt Blanc/Maudit Avy

Articles from:
British Mountaineering Council
Daily Mail
.. and profile of Roger Payne, a professional mountain guide who died in the avalanche.  (At least one other group was guided.)

Still not much in the way of substantive information regarding stability assessment, slide mechanics, etc., but that's quite rare in the mass media, especially immediately following an incident.  (The picture that purports to be of avalanche-affected snow is probably just showing previously existing glacier features.)
