    Anyone know what happened at Turnagain Pass on the 29th?

    From the Trooper Log:

    Text: On 12/29/07, at approximately 1404 hours, Alaska State Troopers
    from Girdwood, U.S. Forest Service, Moose Pass Fire/EMS responded to a
    mountain valley area near mile 61 of the Seward Hwy. following a report
    that a skier had been caught in an avalanche and had suffered a
    traumatic injury. Other people traveling with the injured skier were
    with the victim to provide first aid. A Trooper from Girdwood responded
    to the general area of the injured person, who was determined to be Rory
    Stark, age 36 of Anchorage, but was unable to access Stark because of
    the terrain. A Pavehawk helicopter from the Rescue Coordination Center
    was summoned to the area. Stark was then hoisted into the helicopter
    and transported to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage for
    treatment of a broken leg. The Alaska State Troopers would like to
    thank the Rescue Coordination Center, USFS, Moose Pass Fire / EMS, and
    good Samaritans who responded to the scene of the incident to help.
