Arthur Glaz, Air Force lieutenant, killed at Keystone; fourth resort death this season
Likewise, even those who pass away at a resort must be skiing to be counted. Hence, the death of Kansas' Stuart Brownlee has also been excluded; he was in-bounds at Copper Mountain but succumbed to what's been characterized as a "non-trauma event" -- possibly a heart attack. And while Caleb Moore died at an Aspen resort, he perished as a result of injuries sustained while taking part in the ESPN X-Games snowmobile competition.
Including Moore, at least eight people have died on Colorado slopes thus far in the 2012-2013 ski season, but only four are part of the official count: Natalie Egleston, a Philadelphia executive who died on February 4 after a collision at Aspen Mountain (she was standing still when another skier struck her), plus Tristan Bartlett, thirteen, who died at Copper Mountain on January 4, and Doae Oh, twenty, killed in a January 9 accident, also at Keystone. The latter pair hit trees. Neither Bartlett nor Oh were wearing helmets, but Egleston was.
Our sincere condolences to Glaz's friends, family and loved ones.
