DENALI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE, Alaska (AP) — Officials say a skier from Colorado has died after falling into a crevasse on a glacier in Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve.
The park reports that mountaineering rangers on Monday received a report from a satellite communication device that a skier had fallen into a crevasse. One of the rangers who responded to the call was lowered into the crevasse and confirmed the skier had died in the fall. The park identified the skier as 28-year-old Mason Stansfield, age 28, of Ouray, Colorado. The park says Stansfield’s partner was not injured and that Stansfield’s remains were recovered.
