11 April 2015 - Hanging Gardens Skiing Accident

Twelve members of the BSSAR team responded to a skiing accident on the Hanging Gardens in the Beehive area. Members of a backcountry ski team followed proper safety protocols however, a small wind slab on the off camber portion of the slope sent one in the party over a cliff resulting in his death. BSSAR assisted in the recovery which was ultimately handled by helicopter.
