Heli-ski guide, Christian Cabanilla, passed away yesterday in the mountains near Haines, Alaska.
Christian was leading two clients for Southeast Alaska Backcountry Adventures (SEABA) when a cornice gave way beneath him. The two guests sustained non-life threatening injuries.

He had over a decade of guiding experience in Alaska, Patagonia and Antarctica. He will be deeply miss by all who had the pleasure of spending time in the mountains with him.
