I'm sorry. A prayer for him.
But at the same time I cannot stop myself asking
why is it that when some unknown person dies under an avalanche, he's tagged as being a thrill seeker, someone who did not know what he was f-doing, someone who was endangearing others, someone to look upon with disdain.
When, OTOH someone famous dies, then it's a chorus of (read the piste hors referencies to the press):"He died doing something he loved, we shall miss him".
When coming from the printed press, I find this attitude particularly insulting.
The Mountain doesn't know if you're famous or not, if you have skied down that particular place 1000 times or a billion; just one mistake, and famous or not, the Mountain will claim your life.
