Deaths at Mt Bachelor prompt concern

Recent deaths at Mt. Bachelor are raising concerns about the risks of skiing in less than ideal conditions. Central Oregon Daily's Brooke Snavely reports that following the deaths of two men in their 60's over the weekend, skiers are nervous and avoiding the slopes. With warmer temperatures more skiers were hitting the slopes but with icier conditions there have been concerns expressed about the number of near collisions. However, a data analyst told Snavely skiing and snowboarding in a resort environment is extremely safe.
