The avalanche occurred on July 14, and although Rapaport was rescued, the traumata prolonged left her in a comatose commonwealth. Physicians fought to save her in the days that followed, but were unsuccessful. The skier was declared dead on July 18.

Rapaport vied on the professional freeskiing route. The punishment concentrated on trick skiing imagine snowboarding, but on skis typically within the confines of a specially designed terrain park.

Here’s Rapaport in 2013, playing in the Xtreme Verbier event, which she won, at that year’s Freeride World Tour.

Red Bull, which sponsored Rapaport, corroborated the pathetic turn of events and offered a few messages in thought of the skier 😛 TAGEND

A member of the Red Bull family since 2013, Matilda will be missed by the ski community, her love and her allies. Along with her many friends, our thoughts are now with her husband, Mattias, and her family.

A statement from Ubisoft, given to GameSpot , expresses same sentimentalities 😛 TAGEND

Matilda’s courage, feeling, and desire to share the play she loved with “the worlds” acted as an inspiration for other jocks and for us all. This tragic accident has profoundly touched us. Our hearts and devotions go out to her husband and her wider lineage at this difficult time.

The Freeride World Tour team also shared a touching send-off for Rapaport in its Instagram feed 😛 TAGEND
