I am sad to report that one of the best young ski mountaineers in the Canadian Rockies has died in an early season avalanche near Lake Louise. On Sunday, Trevor Sexsmith of Golden, BC was caught in an class 1 avalanche on Mount Victoria, the mountain that forms the backdrop to Lake Louise.. According to reports, the slide swept him over a very large cliff.
Although I didn't get a chance to meet Trevor, a few of my friends have skied with him. He will be missed by many.
Trevor wasn't' well known by the general public, but well respected in his community.
If you would like to know more about his inspiring adventures, please have a look at his blog.
