I guess I got off lucky with a tweaked new. Spring conditions can be very hazardous. I heard yesterday was rock hard until about 9:30. 02214075-765D-4FD7-965B-34663EAF2668.jpeg

It’s a tight drop in and straight down between a rocky choke point. It’s only a few turns and then you are through but, at this time of year, iit’s a no fall zone. Low snow levels means it’s very rocky.

This is sad.

Note, though, from this report it's unclear whether the the cardiac arrest caused the fall, or whether the fall and subsequent trauma caused the cardiac arrest. An acquaintance died after going into cardiac arrest during lunch at a lodge 8 years ago.

Had a student who went into cardia arrest when he was 11. It's extremely rare but a heart defect is just that - a defect. I don't think the authorities have determined the cause and effect of the Mammoth accident.
