Obviously this is a huge loss for the international splitboard community. My deepest condolences to Liz’s family and friends. http://www.chaltenhoy.com.ar/noticia.php?id_nota=2242&id_seccion=1 El cuerpo de la turista norteamericana fue rescatado del Cerro Vespignani La norteamericana Elizabeth Devon Daley, nacida en 1985, es la víctima del accidente ocurrido en el día de ayer en la ladera del Cerro Vespignani en la zona del Lago del Desierto. Su cuerpo descansa en el puesto sanitario local, esperando las actuaciones que permitan su traslado. Durante la jornada de ayer, aproximadamente a las 14 horas, se dio aviso de una avalancha en el Cerro Vespignani, en la margen Oeste del Lago del Desierto, donde un grupo de turistas realizaban esquí y snowboarding. Se desconoce si el grupo de turistas estaba realizando una actividad guiada o si se encontraban por cuenta propia, la realidad es que en el lugar se encontraban personas de El Chaltén que pudieron dar el aviso de emergencia. Elizabeth Devon Daley, de 29 años, estaba sobre su tabla de snowboard cuando una avalancha la arrastró y no logró sobrevivir. Quienes se encontraban allí, pudieron rescatar su cuerpo y comenzar el descenso hacia el valle. Personal de Gendarmería Nacional y Parques Nacionales, sumado algún voluntario de la Comisión de Auxilio del Centro Andino El Chaltén, se trasladaron desde El Chaltén para apoyar las operaciones de rescate que ya habían sido puestas en marcha. Alrededor de las 21 horas de ayer, el grupo arribó a la localidad, el cuerpo de Elizabeth Devon Daley espera ahora su traslado desde el puesto sanitario local. Las actuaciones de los hechos ocurridos recayeron en la Policía de Santa Cruz, debido al lugar donde ocurrió, fuera del Parque Nacional, en la Reserva Provincial de Lago del Desierto, quienes deberán informar al juzgado de El Calafate. @sun_rocket September 30, 2014 at 9:11 pm #677534 acopafeel 134 Posts ugh, what a wild day.

Got on sb.com for the first time in months to find this… Don’t know what to say. So terrible. 😥 Her TR’s were always so inspiring and it really seemed like she was living life. RIP. October 1, 2014 at 12:03 am #677548 jcbackcountry 47 Posts Absolutely devastated by todays news, but this one really hits home. Liz was a friend, we met at Wheeler Hut (Roger’s Pass) just last winter, we kept in touch and I rode a wave of her endless stoke all winter/spring while she shredded Gnar in Cham/Europe, PNW and while guiding on Denali. I can’t describe in words how much energy and enthusiasm she had for the sport and the mountains. She was warm, funny, caring and thoughtful. I knew her only a short time and she left a huge impression on me. Condolences go out to her family and friends. Hey BF Davide posted a great photo of them this morning, before I had heard of the news, so crushed, too young and vibrant to go. I guess I won’t see you in the Dolomites this winter Liz, but you’ll be in my thoughts always. Thanks for all you’ve done for the sport! October 1, 2014 at 12:08 am #677549 UTAH 830 Posts So sad. Makes me think how much I care about all of you guys/gals, the ones I’ve ridden with and the ones I know only from their words and pictures. I actually had the chance to ride with Liz as well and she was great. Take care everyone. October 1, 2014 at 12:20 am #677550 bcrider 4150 Posts I’m speechless. Liz was such and inspiration and amazing person. We never had the chance to ride together but we’ve communicated quite a bit over the years. Most recently just a few weeks ago we created a contributor acct for Liz and were really looking forward to it. She contributed a lot to our community over the years and will be dearly missed by many. Our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends, and fiancé. I’m so sorry for your loss. Raise a toast for Liz Daley aka LizDee tonight and enjoy some of her awesome TRs. search.php?keywords=&terms=all&author=lizdee&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 47 total) 1 2 3 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
