With lots of early snow a timely reminder to be careful about ski touring in resorts while piste preparation is going on. It is season-over for a ski tourer in Nendaz in the Swiss Valais. Descending the Novelly run, which was being prepared by a rattrac hauled by a cable the Zurichois hit the cable receiving leg injuries. The accident occured around 2pm on Thursday.

We’ve heard of similar accidents, be very careful, especially training after work. These cables are practically impossible to see.
