It is with a heavy heart and immeasurable sadness that we say goodbye to three Leavenworth locals that passed away on Sunday,  February 19th in an avalanche in Stevens Pass backcountry.  Jim Jack, Johnny Brennan and Chris Rudolph were all close friends to so many in this valley and beyond.

Their loss is more than we can even imagine right now.  Our hearts and prayers go out to family and friends.
