An excerpt from the article 39 facts about Dyatlov Pass incident

The slab avalanche theory was accepted by the Russian prosecutor's office as the official cause of the tragedy. The investigation was also carried out by European experts, who, after performing a computer simulation, confirmed the Russians' findings.

The argument contradicting the above findings is that the wrong coordinates were used to conduct the study.
