    Not sure where historical info can be found on accident stats in the Whites but this seems like it has been a pretty bad year for fatalities and accidents. Not sure if it is the availability of so many media sources now or if it really was a bad year. Where does one find a log or record of such incidents on a year to year basis? Does that even exist?
    NH 48 4k: 48/48; NH W48k: 48/48; ME 4k: 2/14; VT 4k: 1/5; ADK 46: 6/46; Cat 3.5k 10/35

    I would guess the accident rate increases with usage. There has been an increase in usage - I read recently that applicants to the 4000-footer club have doubled in the last 12 years. I would guess that correlates to general trends. We can also see the accident info from online sources such as FB such as the Pemi Valley Search & Rescue postings.
    Yay for winter!!!!!
