Sadly, the last week of skiing for most ski areas across the country saw one more death from a collision with a tree.
A Deschutes County sheriff’s officer says a 29-year-old Bend, Oregon, man has died in a skiing accident at Mount Bachelor. Sgt. Ronny Dozier said Peter Sky was skiing with a friend yesterday afternoon when he lost control and hit a tree.
Dozier says Sky died despite first aid efforts by citizens, the Mount Bachelor Ski Patrol and Bend Fire Department medics. He was described as an accomplished skier who was wearing appropriate gear, including a helmet.
