Tragedy at Wolf Creek

I am so sorry to blog about this and share the terrible news, but this morning, the Director of Wolf Creek Ski Patrol was caught in an avalanche and did not survive.

I a waiting for more info about him and his family. I will post as soon as a memorial fund or other way to honor his service is established and when details are released. He is survived by a wife and two children.

Horrible tragedy keeping the rest of us safe. Prayers for comfort for the family go out.

To all our ski patrollers and friends, those that help keep us safe on the mountain--THANK YOU. Cold weather, deep snow, storms, icy conditions, trees, all of the things that are dangerous in their own right are just part of a day at work. Thanks for protecting us and God bless you all as you deal with the loss of your comrade.
