An avalanche near Vail, Colorado trapped four people Tuesday, killing one person later identified as Anthony “Tony” Seibert, and injuring the other three. Anthony Seibert was the grandson of Peter Seibert Sr., who with Earl Eaton around 1960 cofounded the resort area in the backcountry that would become part of the Vail Ski Resort.

The Eagle County Coroner reported the avalanche happened around 11:30 A.M. local time (1830 UTC) in an area known as the East Vail Chutes, near the ski resort of Vail. Spencer Logan of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center said the area is locally known as dangerous, having already killed two people in 2008. The other three have been found and reported to have suffered nonfatal injuries, walking away from the incident without needing hospital care.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center reports five fatalities this season, including another in Colorado on December 31, on Parkview Mountain west of Willow Creek Pass, and a snowmobiler in Big Sky, Montana on New Year’s Day. A friend of the Seibert family, Scott Klumb, told CNN Seibert’s death reminds people “to be careful in the backcountry […] As exciting as it may look, you have to take the proper precautions.”

Peter Seibert Sr. was renowned in the skiing business as, among other roles, the first president of Vail Associates, which he helped make one of the largest and most popular ski resorts in the US. He died aged 77 in July 2002.

Wednesday, Spanish LW10-2 classified sit skier Nathalie Carpanedo finished her wild card run at the IPC Alpine World Championships competing as a member of the Spanish team in the international team friendly held the day after the closing ceremonies for the World Championships. Carpanedo’s team finished tenth in a field of ten teams, which saw the Austria finish first, team 1 for the United States finish second, and Russia finish third.

Carpanedo started the day with 232.13 International Paralympic Committee Alpine Skiing points, and finished her team race with a time of 26.46 seconds. Because teammate Úrsula Pueyo had a faster time of 20.32, Carpanedo’s time was not used in tabulating Spain’s overall ranking as only one time by a female skier was required.

Beyond Wednesday’s event, Carpanedo competed in two individual races at the Championships. Her first was the Slalom, where she earned a Did Not Finish in her first run. 36 of the 112 competitors had the same result in that race. Her other race, the Giant Slalom, saw her finish in tenth in the women’s sitting group with a combined run time of 4:41.30, 2:11.60 minutes slower than Austrian Claudia Loesch and 1:02.58 minutes slower than the ninth place finisher Gyongi Dani of Hungary. Four skiers in the women’s sitting group failed to finish their runs, and 42 of the 117 total skiers in the Giant Slalom failed to rank in the race.

Carpanedo is one of the founding member of the first women’s disability ski team in Spain. Created with the support of Teresa Silva, Fundación También insisted the team be for women to encourage their participation in disability sport. Fundación También supports a number of other sports including skiing, bicycling, sailing, table tennis, canoeing and scuba diving. Carpanedo’s Fundación También teammate Irene Villa attended the final award ceremonies in support of her teammate and winter Paralympic sport in Spain.

With the IPC Alpine World Championships officially ending Wednesday with the conclusion of the national team non-medal friendly competition a day after the competition’s official closing ceremony, New Zealand’s Adam Hall and Corey Peters have completed their run. Their country did not compete in the team competition as they did not have enough skiers to form a team.

With their first event the second race of the competition, Hall finished ninth in the men’s standing Super-G with a time of 1:16.65, 4.16 seconds off the winning time set by Austrian Markus Salcher. Peters finished the Super-G with a time of 1:18.95 in the men’s sitting group for a 22 place finish in a field of 25 skiers.

Hall had his best finish at the Championships on the third day of competition when he earned a bronze medal in the Slalom. Peters did not fair as well, earning a Did Not Finish (DNF) during his second run in the Slalom and consequently not ranking.

In the Super Combined, Hall finished ninth with a combined run time of 1:49.87, 7.43 seconds slower than first place finisher Austrian Matthias Lanzinger. Peters’s problems continued, as he earned a DNF during his first run.

Peters finished tenth in the Giant Slalom, with a combined run time of 2:37.73, 21.93 seconds slower than Japanese gold medalist Taiki Morri. Hall skipped the event.

Despite New Zealand’s small size, the country has a history of doing well at the Winter Paralympics. Most recently, the country saw success when Hall won a gold medal in the men’s standing event at the 2010 Winter Paralympics in Vancouver.

With Australia not having a team compete at Wednesday’s IPC Alpine World Championships in La Molina, Spain, Mitchell Gourley finished his turn at the competition where the 2010 Winter Paralympian failed to earn a single medal.

On the first day of competition, Gourley finished tied in thirteenth place with Swiss skier Thomas Pfyl in the downhill with a time of 1:36.40, 6.66 seconds off the winning time set by Austria‘s Markus Salcher. In the Super-G event on the second day of competition, Gourley finished in eleventh place with a time of 1:16.90 seconds, 4.41 seconds behind winner Salcher. On the third competition day, Gourley earned an eighth place finish in the Slalom with a combined run time of 2:09.66, 3.37 seconds slower than seventh place finisher Andrzej Szczesny of Poland and 13.81 seconds behind winner Vincent Gauthier-Manuel of France. 28 skiers started the Slalom event but only 13 managed to place. Gourley had his best finish in the Super Combined event where he finished in fifth position with a combined run time of 1:45.34, 0.15 seconds slower than fourth place finisher Russian Alexandr Alyabyev and 2.90 seconds slower than Austrian winner Matthias Lanzinger. On the last day of competition, Gourley successfully finished his first run in the Giant Slalom but finished with a Did Not Finish as a result of his second run. Gourley is next set to compete at the Sochi Test event.

Gourley was the only Australian competitor at the Championships. His Australian teammates, including Jessica Gallagher, Melissa Perrine, Toby Kane, and Cameron Rahles Rahbula, missed the Championships either because they needed a small break from this season’s competition schedule or to give themselves additional time to train for the Sochi Test event coming up next month.
