Letter: Rise in skier deaths baffling

Rick Freeman
Pittsburgh, Penn.

When I lived in Vail in 1990 and 1991 a terrible thing happened during the ski season. The first person was killed in a skiing accident on the mountain. After more than 20 years just one person died.

Today I read that 17 people died this year. That is about one extra person dying a year since the first person died on Vail mountain. Something doesn’t seem right about that!
