There are plenty of dark and mysterious corners of the internet. Places where you find yourself, and others. Often through shared interests. And this particular corner is a place of dark experiences. This is the Tales of Whoa. A collection of articles about 'near miss' experiences in the Australian alps. The intention is to shed light on the nature and consequence of some of the hazards that face Baccountry users. These stories have elements that make them characteristically unique to Australia and hopefully you can learn a whole bunch and avoid making similar mistakes.
