Lost his stash somewhere off piste just as the avalanche struck

Denver, Colorado - A low-lying bubble of Denver home-grown weed fumes has been credited with saving the life of a Star Mountain skier trapped on the slippery slopes during an unexpected avalanche this weekend.

Tragedy struck just as downhill snow artiste Barry Budz realised he'd lost his day's supply of indigenous Denver Delight somewhere off piste during the start of a sudden blizzard.

Moments later a huge thunderclap triggered an avalanche into whose path the hapless skier felt himself swept as tons of compacted ice began hurtling downhill towards him.

"Luckily, I remembered just in time to head for the ski lift pickup point," Budz related, "where my pal Bubba works as the local weed dealer."

Poor visibility at the Leadville site earlier this morning had been described by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center as entirely down to the thick, pungent fumes that favor the area since pot's decriminalisation.

An ounce of Bubba's Star Mountain Bazooka retails at around two thousand dollars.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
