Where: Mt. Baker, Washington
His mistake: Unsure. He fell and took a bad fall
What happened: A man and some fellow skiers climbed to the top of Mt. Baker, a 10,781-foot volcano. They weren’t going up the luxury ski resorts, but they earned their turns and trekked up.
During their decent, the man fell and couldn’t self arrest before plunging down a cliff. He died of his injuries.
Dr. Hardy was an experienced outdoorsman who has skied and has gone on many outdoor adventures successfully. It is unclear what condition caused him to fall on Baker.
