German ski racer dies from injuries at Lake Louise

"Alpine Canada and Alberta Alpine encourage the ski family around the world to support the athlete's family and teammates through this hard time". Max Burkhart passed away yesterday in Canada, after a crash in the Nor-Am Cup race at Lake Louise.

Former competitive skier and Ski Racing Media senior editor Sean Higgins tells Postmedia these sorts of tragedies weigh heavily on the close-knit competitive skiing community. French world cup downhill ski racer David Poisson was killed in a training run crash at Nakiska on November 13.

"The tragic deaths of Max and David Poisson are sombre reminders of the risks these athletes take every day they are on the hill - the global skiing community is small and losses like these hit us hard".
