NEWS IN BRIEF STORIES FROM JANUARY 2019


THURSDAY 28TH FEBRUARY

SEARCH FOR TOM BALLARD AND DANIELE NARDI ON NANGA PARBAT

The search for the two missing mountaineers continued on Thursday.

British climber Tom Ballard (30) and his Italian companion Daniele Nardi (42) were attempting to reach the summit of Nanga Parbat.

Contact was lost on Sunday.

A break in the weather was enough for the Pakistan Army to made its first reconnaissance flight of the mountain in search of the pair.

Unfortunately neither the mountaineers nor their camp were detected.

A second flight was made.

According to a statement made in Italian on Daniele Nard's Facebook page, a tent full of snow has been spotted in an avalanched area.

Italian statement:    "Ali Sadpara ha comunicato che è stata individuata dall’elicottero la tenda di campo 3 invasa dalla neve. Nell’area sono state individuate tracce di valanga sul pendio che sta ad indicare la pericolosità della zona.

Il tempo si mantiene discreto sotto i 7000 metri e si è in attesa di ricevere ulteriori informazioni fotografiche e video dal campo base e dall’aviazione pakistana."

Roughly translated into English:     "Ali Sadpara has announced that from the helicopter the tent at camp 3 was seen, filled with snow. Traces of avalanches were detected on the slope, highlighting the dangerous nature of the zone.

Below 7000 metres the weather remains stable and we are waiting to receive further photographs and video from base camp and from pakistan aviation."

It is unclear if the search has been suspended.

WEDNESDAY 27TH FEBRUARY

TWO CLIMBERS MISSING ON NANGA PARBAT

British climber Tom Ballard (30) and Italian Daniele Nardi (42) were attempting to reach the summit of Nanga Parbat.

They were attempting a new route on the Mummery Rib.

It is a steep, avalanche-prone area known for taking lives.

There has been no news from the two mountaineers since Sunday 24th February, when the two confirmed by satellite phone they were on Mummery Rib around 6,300m.

Since then the ground team has had no further communication with Ballard and Nardi.

On Wednesday their base camp team were concerned enough to call in helicopter rescue for assistance.

A flare up of tensions between India and Pakistan has grounded all aircraft in the region.

However with the intervention of the Italian government an exception has been made and a helicopter has been permitted to fly from Skardu on Thursday.

Nanga Parbat is the 9th highest mountain in the world at 8,126m, and has a reputation as the ‘killer mountain'.

It is located in the Daimer District of Pakistan's Gilit Baltistan region.

SWISS SCHOOL TRIPS ON THE RISE?

There has been a gradual decline in Swiss school children going on school ski camps.

They traditionally take place in the term after Christmas.

Cost and alternative activities are blamed.

There have been some real concerns about where the next generation of local skies will come from.

But apparently they are on the rise at last.

ONE DEAD & ONE MISSING IN AVALANCHE

A backcountry skier has died, one is missing and four others have been rescued after an avalanche on the Austria-Germany border.

The slide hit an off-piste area close to a forest in Reutte on Saturday afternoon.

The location is near the Hotel Ammerwald in Germany.

The police say one of the four rescued suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The others were unharmed.

Search operations were continuing on Sunday morning for a missing 43-year-old German.

The rescue operation has been complicated by the fact that most roads to the site were blocked by Saturday afternoon's avalanche and a previous avalanche on Thursday night.

THURSDAY 21ST FEBRUARY

GYWNETH PALTROW SUES MAN SUING HER FOR SKI CRASH

The American actress is involved in a lawsuit over a skiing accident in Deer Valley in Utah.

The accident happenned in 2016 and is described as a "hit-and-run crash" by alleged victim, Terry Sanderson.

But now Paltrow is countersuing him, claiming it was his fault.

She's claiming a symbolic $1 in damages.

Sanderson, a retired Salt Lake City optometrist, claims Paltrow was out of control on the slopes.

He alleges she hit him from behind leaving him with concussion and four broken ribs.

Sanderson claims it has taken him nearly three years to file the suit because he could not function properly because of the concussion and he had attorney problems.

He is seeking $3.1 million in damages.

Paltrow, however, says Sanderson was the cause of the collision and is trying "to exploit her celebrity and wealth".

She is now filing a counter claim, seeking "symbolic damages" of $1 plus costs for her lawyers' fees from Sanderson for defending herself against what she called a "meritless claim.'

What does Deer Valley resort say in the court filing?

"A recreational skiing accident that plaintiff waited nearly three years to sue on simply does not constitute an event that renders a 'reasonable person unable to cope with his daily life'".

ARSON SUSPECTED IN 3 FIRES IN LES ARCS

More than 400 people had to be evacuated from apartment buildings in the French resort of Les Arcs overnight after three separate fires.

No one was hurt.

It's thought the fires were started deliberately.

They broke out in buildings close to each other in the Le Charvet area of Arc 1800.

According to French media, the first was in the garbage room of the Residence Pierra Menta at around midnight.

A second, 30 minutes later, on a balcony of La Croisette, led to an evacuation of 40 people.

Three hours later 400 people had to be evacuated from the Residence Les Belles Challes after a fire was discovered in a rubbish chute.

The evacuees were given shelter in the Congress Hall until 6am when they were allowed back.

A police investigation into the cause of the fires is underway but the Mayor has told journalists that it is very likely they were the result of arson.

A-BASIN & VAIL RESORTS END PARTNERSHIP

Currently you can ski US mountain resort Arapahoe Basin in Colorado on the collective pass offered by Vail Resorts, the Epic Pass.

But not for much longer.

At the end of the 2018-19 ski season Arapahoe Basin will run it's ski passes solo once again.

"A-Basin has seen exceptional growth both in popularity and skier visitation after investing 40 million dollars over the last 15 years," said A-Basin COO, Alan Henceroth.

"While the mountain still has plenty of room for skiers and riders, the ski area is feeling a pinch on parking and facility space."

"With consistent snowfall and one of the nation's highest and most stunning settings, we offer an environment that is totally unique," Henceroth also said

"Our goal is to minimize waiting and crowding and maximize experiences and fun.

"In order to continue to build on this spirit and the experience we have created, Arapahoe Basin and Vail Resorts will not be renewing their pass partnership for the 2019/2020 season,"

It seems like the resort can't cope with the traffic that the collective brings in, which allows skiers with one of these passes ski for free for a number of days...

However, we also wonder whether another collection of resorts with a joint pass will fill this space.

Will A-Basin be taking up with Vail Resorts competitor Alterra Mountain Co. joining its new-this-season IKON Pass?

ATHLETES CRITICISE FIS PRESIDENT

The current Olympic slopestyle gold medallist Jamie Anderson is one of several athletes to criticise the President of the International Ski Federation, Gian-Franco Kasper.

It follows controversial comments he made in a newspaper interview.

See our stories lower down this page on 8th February.

And here:

Kasper played down the impact of global warming and said it was easier to organise the Olympic Games in a dictatorship.

In an interview with ESPN Jamie Anderson said she had discussed potentially skipping the World Championships in Utah in protest at Kasper's comments.

In the end she competed and donated her prize money to the environmental group, Protect Our Winters.

Other athletes to criticise Kasper include the US cross-country skier, Jessie Diggins.

WOODSY PUTS HIS FEET UP

GB's new skiing World Champion, James 'Woodsy' Woods, is to take an immediate break from skiing, saying his body is ‘really sore'.

The 27-year-old won the gold medal in ski slopestyle at the freestyle championships in Utah this month.

It came off the back of a big air bronze medal at the X Games in Aspen in January.

In his latest video blog, Woodsy'sWorld, he reveals that he's sent his skis off in one direction while he's off in another.

"I think I'm quite ready for another adventure," he says.

It's worth a watch:

 

Have a good rest, Woodsy.

We look forward to seeing you back.

CHINA ON TARGET TO HAVE 300m SKIERS

197m million people took part in winter tourism from November 2017 to March 2018.

That's according to an annual report released by the China Tourism Academy.

Winter tourism is booming in China after Beijing won the bid in 2015 to host the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

We have reported on the ambitious aim in the past on PlanetSKI.

Nanshan, ChinaNanshan, China
















The growth in China could have a significant impact on snowsports in Europe over time.

One flight organiser, GTC Travel Group, has seen a jump in demand for winter activity holidays in Europe from the Asia Pacific region.

With just over 30,000 seats booked this winter season, it says sales from the region have grown 15% with the biggest growth from the countries of India, Dubai and China.

GTC Travel Group, which works with a number of ski specialists, said the best-selling airport was Munich for resorts in Germany and Austria.

Flight to airports in Salzburg and Innsbruck have also sold well.

"With the exponential growth of skiing and snow-boarding in Asia it's not surprising that enthusiasts will want to venture further afield to resorts in the West," said director, Tahir Bhimani.

MEASLES OUTBREAK IN VAL THORENS

There have been 18 recorded cases recently.

They are mostly seasonaires in the resort according to the ARS regional health agency for the area.

Parents are being urged to ensure their children are vaccinated if coming for the half-term break next week.

The ARS recorded eight cases in the area in 2016.

It was 45 in 2017 and 84 in 2018.

It is understood that fewer children are being vaccinated against the viral disease that causes rashes and inflammation and can be fatal.

FRIDAY 8TH FEBRUARY

APOLOGY FROM FIS PRESIDENT

Gian-Franco Kasper has apologised to athletes after he said it was easier to organise the Olympic Games in countries governed by a dictatorship.

The 75-year-old president of the International Ski Federation said the comment was "not meant to be taken literally" but that he took "full responsibility" for his remarks.

In an interview with Swiss-German newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, Kasper was quoted as saying: "Dictators can organise events such as this without asking the people's permission.

"For us, everything is easier in dictatorships."

It was thought to be a reference to the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Chinese capital Beijing, where term limits for the President were abolished last year.

Two FIS World Championships are currently taking place and Kasper claimed he was sorry that focus had been taken away from the athletes.

The Alpine World Championships are on  in Åre in Sweden while Utah in the United States is staging the Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard World Championships.

In the past Kasper has compared calls for Russia to be banned from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang to the holocaust.

2 MORE RESORTS ON EPIC PASS

Vail Resorts has added two new destinations to the Epic Pass.

The Epic Pass is a collective ski and snowboard pass that gives riders the ability to ski or snowboard at any of its participating mountain resorts.

As of winter 19/20 Sun Valley Resort in Idaho and Snowbasin in Utah will become a part of the Epic Pass alliance that spans around the world.

Sun Valley was the first-ever destination ski resort in the United States, and had the world's first chairlift.

Snowbasin is less than 40 minutes away from the Salt Lake City International Airport and has played host venue for several 2002 Winter Olympic events.

Epic Pass holders will receive a full week of skiing or snowboarding with no restrictions on dates at both resorts.

The Epic pass also includes more than 60 resorts.

North America resorts include Vail, Beaver Creek, Whistler, Breckenridge, with limited day access to Telluride, Fernie, and Kicking Horse, to name a few.

HIMALAYAN GLACIERS UNDER THREAT

Climate change poses a growing threat to the glaciers found in the Hindu Kush and Himalayan mountain ranges.

That's according to a to a new report that claims if CO2 emissions are not cut rapidly then two thirds of glaciers could melt.

Even if the world limits the temperature rise to 1.5C this century, at least one third of the ice would go.

The glaciers are a critical water source for 250 million people living across eight different countries.

MOUNT HERMON SKI RESORT REOPENS AFTER BORDER CLASHES

The Israeli ski resort will reopen on Tuesday after it was closed on Monday following clashes between Israel and Iranian forces in Syria over the weekend.

The ski resort is in the Golan Heights.

"Given the situation, it has been decided that the Hermon site will not open to visitors Monday," the Israeli Defence Force said in a statement early on Monday morning.

The closure has now been lifted.

The move came after Israel's Iron Dome air defense system intercepted a surface-to-surface missile last month.

Israel claimed the missile attack was shot from Syria and aimed at the ski resort.

The resort was full of skiers and snowboarders at the time.

It has a peak height of 2,814m.

VAL THORENS CABLE CAR CLOSED FOR REST OF SEASON

The Cime Caron cable car has been closed after freezing rain damaged the cables.

The rain turned to ice and moved the pulleys from their rolling bearing.

It created friction along the length of the cables, which in turn damaged the outer layer of the suspension cables.

The four 55 ton suspension cables will all be changed this summer.

The cable car will also undergo a number of substantial changes in order to ensuring this type of incident doesn't happen again.

ESF HEADS TO CHINA

The ski school that claims to be the biggest in the world has opened a ski academy in China.

The French ski school, ESF, is working in partnership with the-all inclusive holiday company Club Med.

There's been a surge of interest in snowsports in China since the announcement tht Beijing will host the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

The new academy will be at Beijing's Star Mountain resort. 

Insidethegames reports that the aim is to support China's plans to improve its competitiveness in ice and snow sports before Beijing 2022.

ESF plans to provide extensive training to Chinese instructors.

Thomas Bach met the Chinese President Xi Jinping and visited venues for alpine skiing, biathlon and ski jumping in Zhangjiakou and Yanqing.

"The impressions are really excellent," he told the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

"The progress being made is remarkable.

"The projects are within the schedule.

He added: "What is important is that we see the growing engagement of the Chinese people with winter sports."

BIG AIRLIFT OF STRANDED SKIERS

The piste patrol in Val d'Isere had a huge job on earlier this week.

They had to airlift 39 skiers and snowboarders to safety after they got stuck in a gorge.

Yes, that's 39.

It took the rescuers around two hours.

The stranded skiers were in several different groups who had skied off piste into the Gorges du Malpasset.

It's frequently impassable and there are signs warning of the danger.

According to Radio Val d'Isere, the gorge is about 20 metres wide with high walls of several hundred metres on each side.

It only suitable for skiers when avalanches from the overhanging slopes fill it and while that was the case last year, it's not this winter.

The Val d'Isere piste patrol posted this warning on social media (and even if you don't understand any French, you'll get the message):

les Gorges sont ⛔⛔⛔⛔⛔⛔ INFRANCHISSABLES, et cette zone est particulièrement dangereuse ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️, restez PRUDENT....

 

Heli-rescue from Gorges du MalpassetHeli-rescue from the Gorges du Malpasset - photo Radio Val d'Isere

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fact that there were so many people who needed rescuing suggests they were following tracks, assuming there must be a route out.

It's likely to have been a very expensive mistake - we doubt many insurance policies will cover the heli-rescue if there were clear warnings to keep out.

We've had some reaction to this on the PlanetSKI Facebook page:

INVESTIGATION INTO CHAIRLIFT BREAKDOWN

160 skiers and snowboarders were left stranded on a lift at Stowe Mountain in Vermont, USA.

The Lookout Double lift stopped due to an electrical problem.

A backup engine also failed.

The people had to be winched off the lift.

The operation took almost 3 hours.

Two people were treated for minor cold-related issues.

SVINDAL BOWS OUT

The Norwegian ski racer, Aksel Lund Svindal, is to retire after this month's World Championships in Are, Sweden.

He has had a 17-year World Cup career and is a four-time Olympic medalist.

"One last big push out the start gate at the World Championships in Åre. After that I'll be watching this great sport from the sidelines," Svindal wrote on Instagram.

Here at PlanetSKI we have found him one of the most exciting skiers of his generation.

Let's hope he bows out on a high.
