Tony passed away in an avalanche in the East Vail Chutes today.
“This is a shocking and terrible tragedy. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to Tony’s entire family. I want to acknowledge how integral the Seibert family is to the fabric of our community; their contributions to Vail date back to Vail founder Pete Seibert, Tony’s grandfather. This is an incomprehensible loss and we will support the Seibert family and our community through this difficult time. Tony had recently starred in, “Climb to Glory,” a documentary that will forever be a tribute not only to the famed 10th Mountain Division and his family’s legacy but to a wonderful albeit tragically too short life.” – Chris Jarnot, SVP and COO of Vail Mountain
Tony Seibert passed away January 7th in a large slide in the East Vail backcountry. Tony was a perfect example of why skiing is fun. I’ve never seen someone so positive after tearing their ACL. From pipe to big mountain, he crushed all aspects of the sport. Tony, thank you for inspiring. – West Elk Project
