A Manitoba teen has died after a skiing accident at Holiday Mountain last week.
The 13-year-old girl from Prairie Spirit School Division was on a field trip at La Riviere when she was badly hurt after losing control on an advanced run and crashed into an orange plastic fence that separates the run from an adjacent T-bar line.
The girl’s family made the decision to take her off life support on Tuesday.
