On Sunday afternoon a 21 year old boarder went over the International Cliff at Alpental. According to the news accounts he fell between 100 and 300 feet or the equivalant distance of falling from a 20 story building. He was airlifted to Harborview where he was listed as critical. I have heard on TV since that he had regained consciousness and was listed as serious condition. Hopefully he is able to make a full recovery it sounds like he really lucked out. I am kind of curious since he was in the out of bounds ski area would he have intentionally gone over the cliff and tried a jump like in the Banff Film Festival or Warren Miller Films or do you think he was over his head and was maybe looking for a shortcut down and slid over the cliff? So far this year two snowboarders have been killed.
