Swedish skier Matilda Rapaport croaked after an avalanche arose during a movie kill in Chile for the Ubisoft-published extreme boasts recreation, Steep . Rapaport was 30 years old.
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
It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the information that @matildarapaport did not subsist the avalanche in Farellones. The deficiency of oxygen she accepted meant that their own lives could not be saved. This is another pain scandalize for the freeride parish and the FWT family. Matilda was the personification of excellence, on and off the mountain. She marked the history of female freeskiing and is likely to be profoundly missed. The FWT is moving its deepest sympathy and condolences to Matildas relatives during this very difficult time <3 #fwtfamily credits : peak performance
