A 30-year-old man died last weekend in Whistler when he was snowboarding out of bounds. In a twist on the tree well accidents, he fell headfirst into a hole created by wind-fallen timber and suffocated in the deep snow.
The tragic accident occurred in Khyber Pass, off the backside of Whistler Mountain. Witnesses spotted the man, dug him out of the snow, and attempted to revive him. After about an hour, Whistler Mountain Ski Patrol, Whistler Search and Rescue and a helicopter found the victim and the witnesses. All attempts to revive the victim proved unsuccessful.
