Monika who is one of the BEST well known skiers, mountaineers, and a SAR member in Wa lost her life on Red mountain. I never formally met her but, talked with her at WA pass 2 yrs ago when hanging with a group of mine and she was looking for a ride (and of course found one with some of us) back up to blue lake area parking. She was top notch and it is a huge loss for the many that know her well.
So sad. My thoughts are with the family and the many friends she shared the mountains with. What a loss.... http://www.king5.com/news/local/Skier-missing-Red-Mountain-115145064.html
rest in peace gal...
This is also a note to those who may not know. STAY AWAY from cornices! She knew more than many do, but may have not known how undercut it really was. So sad cause she was so good and so awesome. WA mountain community has had a huge loss.
