Eric Buss

Eric Paul Buss, aged 40, died November 27th, 1991, when an avalanche struck six members of Bulkley Valley Search and Rescue while they were on a training exercise on Hudson Bay Mountain.

“…if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself, upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy, after all, is the end of life. This is what life means and what life is for.” – George Mallory,
