    I know of two people that just skied over in the LRR. One did the Supergully (Lost River Peak) and the other did Borah. Looked like fairly good coverage in the supergully, not sure about Borah.

    I can connect you via text with someone who skied Borah a couple of weeks ago.

    I checked in too late for this trip but may still want to talk to them, I’d love to ski Borah. Thanks!

    Sun Valley local and a good friend, it's going to be a tough one for a lot of people. I'll hold off on the name until it's officially released.

    Name should be released tomorrow, even though everyone in town has pretty much heard. Sad sad day. A caravan of fire and EMS vehicles just rolled through the valley bringing him home.

    Never met him. Was always interested too. His guidance and common sense through Covid was legendary.

    Terry was not just an ER doc and backcountry skier. His life touched people all over the globe.

    I had the honor of working with him over the past 5 years. He was the medical director for the Wood River EMS agencies, ski patrols and for Stanley Ambulance. He was an amazing educator and an outstanding emergency doc. He was also an accomplished writer, researcher and mountaineer.

    He was an avalanche educator, and wrote the protocols for avalanche rescucitation. During the early days of COVID, when we were the first hard hit community in the country, he and I wrote the protocols for EMS response that went on to statewide adoption. He continued research on COVID with UW and Fred Hutchinson for several years.

    Terry was a major advocate for mental health resources for first responders and medical staff. When we suffered back-to-back responder suicides, he was the one who everyone turned to.

    In between all that, Terry spent time as a mountain ranger on Rainier. He summited Everest. He was an IGMA guide.

    I last saw Terry at the ER. We dropped off a patient and as we were repacking, he tossed a bag of cookies at me to take back to the station.

    And he never bragged about anything he did.

    Nicely said. He leaves a huge hole in our fabric. Ironically my Google photos sent me a reminder pic that we skied the Red Sentinel couloir together ten years ago today. He would always graciously write for me at The Avalanche Review: "Not Dead Yet," and "Still Not Dead Yet," both on those Avalanche resuscitation protocols.

    Please let us know when there will be a service.
