The top three avalanches that we have on record over the past 100 years have a combined estimated death toll of 34,000 (and in 2015 alone, 310 people have died in avalanches).

The people of Colorado, in an effort to mock and trivialize the deaths of avalanche victims past and future, decided to name their team after the deadly phenomenon. Despite repeated protests from the families of avalanche victims, the Colorado franchise refuses to change their name or even donate to Avalanche awareness and safety campaigns, probably.
The disgraceful Colorado Avalanche must be stopped.
Besides, the Colorado Rockies were better anyway, and no one ever died on or around the Rocky Mountains.
