My brother Matt is on a two-day Amtrak train back to Colorado right now. He can’t fly for a month because of the damage to his partially collapsed lung, his multiple broken ribs, compressed vertebrae, and thoracic spine fracture.
This is the scene I came upon on Friday at Hunter. He came from screen-right to screen-left at high speed and hit the fence protecting the snowmaker was barely visible. He caught an edge at last second, and had a helmet on, else it may have been worse. One of the scariest things I’ve ever come upon, but happy he’s alive and will ski again.
