Fatality in ski accident at KHMR last week

A middle aged woman from overseas died from injuries sustained in a collision at Kicking Horse last week.

On Feb. 9, a collision between two guests at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort proved to be fatal for one of the parties involved.

The injured guest, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the injury, collided with another skier on the Lower Mountain portion of the resort. With the assistance of a medical doctor on scene, Kicking Horse Mountain Safety responded in accordance with resort emergency procedures. By 11:15 a.m. the patient was transferred to BC ambulance services and was then transported by air to Calgary, where she succumbed to her injuries on Feb. 11.

“Our thoughts, prayers and care go out to the family and friends,” said Matt Mosteller, spokesperson for Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. “Our team is deeply saddened by the news.”

The B.C. Coroners office is continuing to investigate the file.

The victim, a middle aged woman, was visiting the resort from overseas.
