Coverage is definitely shitty. Even with our recent good snow, when you get off the groomers, you ARE gonna hit some shit. No doubt about it.

Not more deaths than usual i would assume, maybe more reported nationally on the internet.

Poor bloke. Coverage would be normal for this time of the year. Mid mountain base is about 1.5 meters.

We just had a skier die at Keystone yesterday. I don't know if it has been determined if he hit the trees where he was found or if it was a medical condition. At least in the lower 48, these collision deaths seem to be on an upward trend this year. Record setting? Probably not, but it does seem to be happening more frequently than in the past few years.

*I just read it was blunt force trauma for the skier so it was another collision death. RIP to both of these souls.

I think I read that it was in the trees at the intersection of Prospector and Alamo. 58 y.o. male from Georgia with a day pass. He was wearing a helmet and chest protector.

This is what I read about the accident.

Quote:
Odo Lessacher, of Griffin, Ga., died from blunt force trauma to the chest and internal bleeding, Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson said in a statement on Sunday night. He was not wearing a helmet.

Either I read it wrong or some of the details were still sketchy yesterday. All the same, RIP.
