Two promising skiers from the U.S. Ski Team were killed during an avalanche Monday.
19-year-old Bryce Astle and 20-year-old Ronnie Berlack were freeskiing near the Rettenbach glacier near the location of the U.S. Ski Team's training base in Austria when they were caught in an avalanche.
The two men were part of the U.S. Development Ski Team, which trains new skiers. Berlack, seen here in a Weather Channel interview, joined the team in 2013 after finishing strong at the U.S. Alpine Championship.
