From www.tagesanzeiger.ch - a summary translated by myself.
"Snowboarder in Italien nach Zusammenstoss mit Skifahrer gestorben"
BELLUNO - A 38 year-old snowboarder died after a collision with a
skier in the Dolomites. The skier left the injured snowboarder lying
in the snow without offering any assistance. The snowboarder was
rammed by the skier who was travelling at a very high speed.
I find this a bit like the fairly frequent "biker down" threads on
ukrm. I mean, was it anybody I know, or you know? If not, what's the
big deal? I mean, it's not _that_ unusual an occurence.
The day a death on the slopes is treated as 'not a big deal' is the day I
think I'll hang up my boots.....
