Another tragedy on the slopes this winter, but this time not due to an avalanche or trauma. Forty-Seven year old John Denapoli of Lunenburg, Mass. died this weekend due to a perceived heart attack. He was found unresponsive on the lift at 4:40pm and police have ruled his death as not suspicious and not ski related. Although he died in a manner many of us would not mind, 47 is way too young to die and our thoughts go out to John and his family and friends. RIP John.
