Wow, another death!?

Had to look up the trail map for Skibowl. Looks like the trail she crashed on was a blue. Guess she was just bombing it and lost control.

I was there, at Skibowl, that night and the weird thing is I probably boarded past the accident at least five times after it happened. Makes you really think about it when you're that close....

It was very fast and on that run there are a couple of decent hills that I would not take at speed that day. The way the terrain lays if you did take it at speed it would take effort to not catch air and loose control in the curves.

Snowolf is right, very fast day and got even faster later in the day. There was another pretty bad accident that same night.

They say she was an experienced boarder, and a cautious one as well. Very sad....
