Skiing Accident Claims Maryland Man’s Life at Wisp Resort

By Alpert Schreyer on January 28, 2013

A Maryland man lost his life during a January 19 skiing accident at Wisp resort. The man, who was identified as an accomplished skier, lost control while on a slope and struck several trees, as reported by FirstTracksOnline.com.

Reports indicate that the 40-year-old man was skiing on the resort’s Squirrel Cage run with friends as part of the First Tracks program. This allows season pass holders and those with multi-day tickets to use the slopes 90 minutes before they become open to the public. While reports have not indicated what the reason was, the victim lost control and struck trees that were along the trail. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead soon after. He was reportedly wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Skiing accidents can easily result in major injuries or death due to their often severe nature. Out-of-control skiers are unable to protect themselves and prevent running into obstacles and other dangers. Collisions with trees and rocks or falling off of cliffs are some of the most common causes of fatalities during skiing.

Ski resorts have a responsibility to make their trails as safe as possible, remove dangerous hazards, and inform visitors of the difficulties they may face. Skiers understand that there are many dangers while out on the trail, but if they are not warned, their safety can be at greater risk.
