Thread Starter 
I just got a Phone call that I pray I never have to get again.A vary Good friend was Killed Yesterday in a skiing accident in Apen Co. His name was Bob Littlewood, Bob and I did a lot of hiking this past summer and skiing together when we could.He was a Great guy,full of life and energy. The info I have heard is sketchy at best.So we are not sure what happened?I was told he was cought in an in-bounds avalanche? His wife will be returning here to Park City Late today.Right now I am in shock.... If anyone from Aspen has an info on what happened Friday could you please pass it on?

Bob, You go on ahead we'll catch up to You.See you later my friend.

Thanks Digger, That was my Friend,Bob Littelwood.He was agreat guy,He was 67 but had such a young attitude outlook on life.He loved the Mountains Loved skiing.He didn't even start skiing untill he was 55 years old and for him it was more then a sport. He was vary much a "skier".He was excited about completeing a 5 day clinic earlier this season and looking toward doing a late season trip to Sun Valley,Grand Targee and Jackson.He's gone to be really missed.

what terrible news.

It reminds me of christmas morning 1988 when I woke to the sound of my mothers voice howling...she had just found out her brother had drowned in a diving accident off a remote part of NZ the day before.

he passed away loving life, doing what he enjoyed, living. it was not a waste.

god bless, my thoughts are with you, your friends and his family.

So sorry, Utah. I'm sure you have the sympathies of all the Barking Bears. May Bob find endless days of powder and blue skies....

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

Utah, I heard an expression the other day
"We live too short and die too long"

Sounds like your friend made the most of his "living" time. take care!

What a tragedy. The first thing that comes to mind when they say 'incapacitated' is what incapacitated him. It would be a shame if he were knocked unconcious & wasn't wearing a helmet.
