Tragedy At Meadows

A skier was killed at Mt. Hood Meadows today. While my sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends, the incident also reaffirms my decision to go with a helmet on the slopes. I also feel bad for whoever the patroller was who responded first.

I hope the 'unidentified snowboarder who left the scene' steps forward and tells his story and/or accepts responsibility if he or she was involved.

I hope this incident also serves as a reminder that everyone out there on the slopes has a responsibility. Know the code.
