Skier Killed On Bald Mountain Identified
We told you yesterday of the man killed while skiing on Bald Mountain in Sun Valley Wednesday. Yesterday afternoon the Blaine County coroner identified the man as 49 year old Christopher Bridgeman of Ketchum. Bridgeman was skiing in bounds when around 11 a.m. another skier saw him go over a cat track and out of view. That skier followed Bridgeman to see if he was okay and found him lying unconscious at the base of a tree. The ski patrol soon arrived and found Bridgeman “unresponsive”. Bridgeman was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. This is the second death at Bald Mountain in the last 13 months.
