    Near Death

    Dangerous at this time of the year? You bet! Seen here are members of the volunteer ski patrol and National Forest Services attending to Kevin Sullivan of Boston after Kevin fell and slid down the steep slope cartwheeling over 30 feet of rocks and shrubs. With slopes these steep there isn't much of a chance to stop yourself from sliding out of control and into some brutal rocks at the snow edge. By some miracle Kevin survived with only a head wound and multiple contusions. Be wary of the dangers! bring a helmet and spare body parts!
