2 Skiers Die At Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort
In what at least seems to be an unusually deadly ski season in Montana and Wyoming, two skiers were killed yesterday at Whitefish Mountain in Northwest Montana. In a separate incident, another man died yesterday in an avalanche near Hungry Horse Dam in Flathead County.
WHITEFISH - Two male skiers died at Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort on Saturday.
