A 22 years old young man has been declared dead after a skiing incident on Mount Haig near the Castle Mountain Ski Resort. RCMP officers from the Pincher Creek detachment are investigating the death of the young skier. Police said that the deceased was fallen down a rocky slope early Saturday afternoon after he was hit by loose rock.
The two skiers with him attempted first aid and the other hikers too who were in the nearby area of Haig Lake. Police and local emergency personnel were soon dispatched to the accident scene with an Alpine Helicopters crew out of Canmore. Family members of the deceased were on scene as the helicopter crew completed a difficult long line recovery of the body.
