Here it is:
I somehow missed this - it's very, very sad. Sorry if this was posted before, I did a search on Epic and didn't see it. I don't recall a lot of coverage on this locally, like when Sarah Burke died. The really weird thing is that it happened freeskiing on a routine bump run. Double Jack is a serious bump run, but it's been hacked down by many an intermediate- she had only been skiing seven months and was with her coach & teammate. She was an Olympic gymnast crossing over to aerials... According to the article, she sought out the edge of the run where the bumps were smaller, lost control and headed into the aspens skier's right...hit one & broke her neck. Her coach, Canadian Ryan Snow had gone ahead, then the teammate, then Souza. From the accounts, they were over their heads and going too fast. The coach had total confidence in their ability to ski a double black mogul run, they were olympic gymnasts, after all. They did not feel as confident. I've skied Double Jack a hundred times- including twenty five years ago when my buddies threw me down it after only a week on skis... it's nasty, but negotiable. I ski it slow and controlled these days unless it's a powder day (it's the most direct route to Jupiter Bowl...)
I'm just very sad and upset that this happened on our mountain to such a promising young athlete.
