Skier Drowns


Recommended Posts

That's maybe one of the freakiest accidents I have ever heard about


In twenty five years of white water kayaking, I hadn't heard of this type of entrapment, and I've done a lot of swift water rescue stuff. We all wear helmets on whitewater, and that this should happen to a skier is mind blowing.

Yes, this was a VERY TRAGIC FREAK ACCIDENT:( Unfortunately the article is (as are others) incorrect. She was snowboarding when this happened, NOT skiing. Unfortunately I happen to know a bit about what happened. Her fiance happens to be my ex husband. She was a hard booter as is my ex husband. He is devastated.

Please say a prayer for her family and my ex husband. If anyone wishes to send condolences please PM me direct and I can supply instructions. Thanks

Tragic indeed.

There have been a number of skier/snowboarder "Drownings" in the Pacific Northwest in the mountains. I almost joined them a few years ago. Terrifing

This report has her correctly identified as a snowboarder.
