  1. I haven’t been able to find out anything about an accident today that happened during a Michelin training exercise. I heard that someone died and that fire and rescue were there now trying to get the man off the mountain. I believe he was a Sams employee and was staying at the Bolton Valley Resort…can anyone find something out about this?????
