Convy: Thanks to those who helped Kansas woman after Keystone hit-and-run (letter)

My wife was seriously injured at Keystone Mountain on Monday, Jan. 18 at approximately 11 a.m. near the intersection of Whipsaw and Spring Dipper, when another skier traveling at a high rate of speed hit her from behind.

The offending skier offered no assistance, showed little concern, collected his skis and poles and left the scene. Not only did it ruin our ski vacation, but it also broke 7 of her ribs and punctured a lung. We wish to acknowledge the outstanding care she received after the incident, first from the Keystone Ski Patrol, then by the staff at the Mountain House Clinic, followed by the doctors, nurses, technicians and other staff at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, where she spent 4 days in the hospital under their care.

We wish we could thank you all individually but that would be impossible. So from the first responder to the last caregiver, from the bottom of our hearts, please except a collective thank you for a job well done. Summit County is blessed to have you all.
