Just a week after a serious tubing incident t Deer Valley, a 27-year-old Calgary man is dead after a tubing accident early Tuesday morning at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, British Columbia. The man was sliding down a closed ski run at around 1 a.m. when he hit a wooden post at the bottom of the chairlift. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was eventually pronounced dead.
A resort spokesperson says there is no night skiing or sledding allowed on the mountain. As with the Deer Valley accident, a group were on a closed ski run after hours. The man is believed to have been in a group of six people who hiked up the run.
