Snowboarder Dies On Whistler Mountain

by The Editors on January 18, 2013

An Australian snowboarder, who was attempting to walk out of some steep terrain on Whistler Mountain with a friend apparently slipped and fell into a “treed area” and “suffered a head injury” according to a story in the Vancouver Sun.

Staff Sgt. Steve LeClair says it appears the man and a woman he was with found themselves in steeper terrain that they were able to handle and he fell while trying to walk down the slope. . . The young man was transferred to a hospital in Vancouver, but died Thursday night.

Our thoughts are with the mans family and friends.
