Hallucination / Mirage in extreme cold? - Page 2

post #31 of 39

I'd say go to a public library, and look for an old article in their archives* for a skier who died on that mountain.  Then find an old-timer who worked there as a teen and ask him if he remembers: (a) the location on the mountain where the person died, and (b) when they found his body, was the deceased missing a glove.

 

*  unless local newspapers have been downloaded to the web.

Was this at Hunter? Could have been the ghost or Orville or Izzy.

Now it would have been really strange if the apparition was wearing a blue jacket with black trim.  Or a white jacket with gold trim.  Or both.

Pretty sure it depends on the mood of the lift riders.

This. Plus altitude can feed it. Not uncommon for mountain climbers to be certain someone's just behind them, even have a sense of what they're wearing.

I certainly wasn't drowsy, in fact I was talking with someone else on the chair when I saw the apparition. I said 'what's this guy doing?' and he said 'who?'.
