February continues the deadly trend in skier fatalities. A 25-yr-old Washington man died when he struck a tree on a ski run at Mission Ridge Ski Resort in Wenatchee, WA a week ago. Today at Castle Mountain Resort south of Calgary, a ten-year-old lost control and fatally collided with a pole.

Both deaths illustrate the dangers of lack of control, and in the case of the youngster it may reflect the heavy snowfall conditions recently experienced by the Calgary area.
