I can see you doing shadow strokes and this happening.
Gambler Hinoki Vector blade; Double inverted. Or some LPs.

It would make a wonderful backdrop for some high level shadow stroking.

Likely that he slid down heavy snow cover on a very steep, but not vertical, section of the cone.  There are many places where the drop off is vertical, so he was lucky.  

Last year I hiked down the caldera to the lake to take the boat tour and then hiked up to the top of the cindercone that rises several hundred feet up out of the middle of the lake.  Almost too exhausted to make the climb back out after the boat tour.

Good news that it was not you. 
Lots of forumers on the East Coast are anxious to see you next year.
May be a match or two against you.

You probably have visited west coast more than east coast.

This really reminds me of one of my favorite Crater lake stories, which I might have already told Mark (but not posted anywhere).

Around 15 or 20 years ago, I took my kids (who were still young then) to Crater Lake to meet up with some friends from California.  It was snowing there, even though it was 4th of July weekend (this was before I started playing table tennis, so it hadn't occurred to me that i was supposed to be playing in Vegas).  Near the lodge there, the drop-off to the lake is quite steep and  there is only a low stone wall (2' high at most) to keep people away from the cliff.  Plus warning signs, of course. 

So this unknown boy of about 10 years old climbed over the 2' wall and walked right up to the cliff edge (on the snow!).  My friends (the parents) yelled at him to get away from the edge, which he did.  However, his parents, who were not close to him but were close enough to hear my friends yelling, then started yelling at my friends because  they didn't appreciate having their kid yelled at.

Afterwards, my friends admitted that their mistake was in doing anything at all.  They should have left the kid at the cliff edge because "it's just natural selection."  (We missed the chance to cull the human genome of some stupidity genes.)

The same may well apply to the guy in the news article.LOL
