Mary Bono Mack, the former congresswoman and widow of singer (and politician) Sonny Bono, broke her wrist while snowboarding at Colorado’s Purgatory weekend of January 19, 2013 with her husband Connie Mack, according to a story on MyDesert.com. It was reportedly her first time snowboarding.
Bono Mack was, according to her official Twitter account, vacationing at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort with husband Connie Mack when the incident happened. . . “Took my first snowboarding lesson ever today @skipurg with @conniemackiv. Hmmmm. Yeah.. no..don’t think I will make the switch from skis. . . [then later} Boarding experiment over. Broken right wrist. Damn. There goes ski season. Good time to work on my book. Great loving husband."
Though who know will remember that Mack's former husband Sonny died in January 5, 1998 at Heavenly Valley resort from "massive head injuries" after hitting a tree while skiing. Nice that Mack hasn't let her past slow her down one bit.
