Well being of the religious persuasion, I take comfort in the fact that every day in heaven is a powder day My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

The most surprising thing about this is that it actually made the news. Dozens of people die every year at resorts around the country, and the resort's PR teams usually manage to keep it out of the press or downplay it. A few years ago mid-way through the season, an EMT for Heavenly in Lake Tahoe told me 6 people had already died from injuries at the resort that season, but NONE of them had made the news. Crazy.

The scary thing is, that could happen to any of us... at any given run and time.

Resorts need to teach people how to 'fall properly' or at least post recommendation signs like the smartstyle ones. Maybe it'd save tragedies like this from happening.

RIP...

Makes me shudder just thinking about how many times I've whiplashed my head. Not just in snowboarding, but in life in general and any one of them could've killed me.
