Skiing Fatality at Jackson Hole

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Logged on to my computer at work this morning and heard about this.

I have met Marc and worked with some of his colleagues in his law firm over the last couple of years.  He was a very nice guy and this is very sad news.

 

Any of you Jackson Hole folk know any details?  This article says they found him inverted in the snow in Brush Gully.   Could he have fallen in a tree well in that area?

Lot a snow out there. Probably NARSID.
Becareful kids and keep an eye out!


RIP Marc.

I heard that someone had died two days ago, but there were no details.  I still haven't heard anything meaningful.  This article had more info than was going around.  I was "thinking" heart attack, but NARSID seems plausible.  It was very deep that day.  I was skiing in some lines on Sublette that were almost crotch deep.  I haven't seen any serious tree wells yet this season and where he was found is pretty low on the mountain where it wasn't nearly as deep as up on top.

A little more detail :

It was asphyxiation, so I assume that's NARSID. But it doesn't sound like it was in a tree well, so maybe something else caused him to not be able to get out of the situation.

Doesn't have to be a tree well. Any soft snow immersion could do it.
