We love to clear up rumors, so here's another one. Tim Petrick, VP and General Manager for K2 skis and skates, is not dead, not paralyzed, and not buried. Yes, he was thoroughly spanked by an avalanche set off by another member of his Alaska Chugach Range ski group. As a result of the 2,000-foot tumble down a 40-degree slope and over a 50- to 100-foot cliff somewhere along the way, Petrick did suffer a dislocated elbow, some seriously torn abdominal muscles, a "low-grade" tear of the MCL, and other internal injuries. Petrick, who is already back to work, fared better than Doug Sabanosh, an editor for Ski magazine who fractured his pelvis and is now recuperating following surgical repairs.
