U.S. Skiiers Bryce Astle & Ronnie Berlack Die in Avalanche

Bryce Astle (left) and Ronnie Berlack, two promising ski racers on the U.S. Ski Team, have died following an avalanche at an Austrian resort.

The two skiiers were development-level racers who were among a group of six athletes freeskiing at the resort when the avalanche hit. The other four were able to ski out of the slide.

Ronnie, 20, and Bryce, 19, were both outstanding ski racers who were passionate about their sport – both on the race course and skiing the mountain,” said U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Tiger Shaw. “Our hearts go out to the Berlack and Astle families, as well as to their extended sport family. Both of them loved what they did and conveyed that to those around them.”
