First of all im not supposed to know this so ill leave out details to not get in trouble.
so my dad is on ski patrol at a mountain nearby and its icyer than shit, the other day the cat literally slid off the run because its so icy. but back to my point. there were two kids today that snowboarded under the rope to get to a steep moguly ice run, they immediately took their boards off because it was too icy to board. they both slipped out and slid down the run. one of them slid into three different trees, one got out fine. the one that hit the trees was really messed up and he got careflighted out. he died on the way to the hospital.
his helmet was at the lodge because it was a sunny day and he didnt want to wear it.
please everyone wear your helmets, this is serious shit even if they were being not smart.
