The 34-year-old Dave Treadway was skiing near Rhododendron Mountain when he fell more than 100 feet into a crevasse.


A statement published on Dave Treadway's website confirmed that he died in a skiing accident on Monday, near his Pemberton home in British Columbia.

Pemberton Search and Rescue (PSAR) responded to the call and retrieved Treadway's body with assistance from the nearby Whistler Search and Rescue.


David Mackenzie from PSR said temperatures were nearing 60 agrees. It is believed Treadway slipped off an obscured snow bridge.

His ski partners immediately called for assistance and carefully attempted a crevasse rescue while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive.

Mike Douglas, a friend of Treadway, said on Instagram that the world "lost an incredible human being and a wonderful family is suffering unthinkable grief."

As reported by Outside Online, a team of 14 responders was able to bring Treadway's body up from the crevasse. The rescue mission took about an hour.

Treadway was 34 years old and is survived by his wife, Tessa, as well as their two young sons and the couple's third unborn child.
