Is this at Vail? I was at Keystone today and a flight for life helicopter landed in the valley between Dercum Mountain and the North Peak. They were taking someone down on a sled attached to a snowmobile while a ski patroller was frantically giving CPR to the victim. A minute after getting the injured person to the base where the helicopter was at they shut the engine off and all of the sudden no one seemed to be in too much of a hurry. I was assuming the person didn't make it.
This was here in vail or beaver creek, not sure of more details. I also had not seen the silverton one either
1/19 -- Keri Metzler died on January 19 at Silverton Mountain, an expert-only ski area that requires skiers and riders to wear avalanche beacons and carry snow probes and shovels. Metzler allegedly dropped a ski while on Riff's Run and then slid some 1,500 feet, dying of blunt trauma from the fall.
