The worldwide ski community lost two of it’s finest souls this week. Kip Garre and Allison Kreutzen were found on Split Mountain in the Eastern Sierra after an avalanche apparently swept them down the Split Couloir. Kip and Allison were accomplished ski mountaineers and exceptional people. They will be deeply missed by the Tahoe community and beyond. A memorial service for Allison and Kip will be held Thursday, May 5, from 2 to 5pm at the Olympic Village Lodge in Squaw Valley.
