News has broke that pro skier Dave Treadway has died yesterday in the Pemberton/Whistler backcountry. It is being reported that Treadway died after falling over 100 feet into a crevasse. Pique News reports that Dave was backcountry skiing near Rhododendron Mountain at the time of the accident.
From gofundme.com page set up to support Dave’s Family:
On April 15, 2019 Dave Treadway was killed in a crevasse fall accident in the mountains of Pemberton, BC. Dave was a passionate individual who’s achievements in the mountains were only outweighed by his desire to show others the love of God. He did this by serving as a youth leader in his community and by leading as a professional skiing role model.
Dave’s immediate family, including his wife and his 3 children (ages 6, 2 and unborn) will inevitably face the realities of living without their bread winner. Dave and Tessa had very recently committed to buying a house in Golden BC.
Dave had a huge impact on many people and we encourage you to donate to a fund to support Dave’s wife and children in their future life.
Information about celebrations of life for Dave will be updated here.
Our deepest condolences to Dave’s family and friends.
