It was the largest loss of life to an avalanche in Glencoe, claiming two men and two women. Three climbers died in an avalanche in Glencoe in 2008.
Today's accident involved a party of three men and three women, climbing on Bidean Nam Bian.
They were descending near Church Door Buttress and had just left the ridge when the whole slope collapsed.
One man jumped clear, but the other five were swept down the 3500ft mountain.
The man followed them down and found a woman on the surface with a bad head injury.
