At this point, you’ve probably heard of professional skier Nick McNutt’s burial in an avalanche accident while filming with TGR in 2019. After a successful morning of skiing big lines alongside Christina Lustenberger, Sam Smoothy and Ian McIntosh, McNutt decided to head up for a few minigolf laps on some tasty-looking pillow stacks above where the crew’s sleds were parked.
Midway down his second line, he dislodged a large pillow that broke into pieces and cascaded straight down his line. McNutt had already committed to the exit, and was hit full-force by the mass of moving snow, which dragged him through some trees and buried him deep on the flat lake surface below.
