Avalanche claims the life of skier Jamie Pierre at Snowbird

Jamie Pierre

The skiing community suffered a loss with the death of Jamie Pierre in an avalanche in Utah. Pierre and a friend were in the south Chute area of Snowbird, which had not opened, when the avalanche happened that took Pierre’s life.

It was hardly a surprise that Pierre would be in harm’s way, given his no-holds-barred approach to skiing that included his then record-setting 2006 drop off a 255-foot cliff at Grand Targhee, Wyo.

Although Pierre’s life had changed much in recent years, a remarkable 2005 story by Skiing executive editor Mike Kessler about Pierre detailed his complicated life of partying, his family, and how ultimately God took a role in his life. Read it here.
