Ronni and Bryce skied faster and faster by the second. Four more skiers joined them and they stopped near the Ski Team's European Training base. The ground shook as the big boulders of ice fell on Ronnie and Bryce. The four that were with them skied away as fast as a cheetah, but Ronnie and Bryce were left there, buried under the snow.
Ronnie Berlack and Bryce Astle loved skiing. Ronnie was 20 years old and a U.S ski athlete and Bryce was 19, from Sandy, Utah. On Monday, January 5th, 2015 in Soelden, Austria there was an avalanche killing both guys, leaving them buried under the snow. Ronnie, Bryce and four other U.S athletes were skiing on a trail near the Ski Team's European training base. The four others were able to escape. There were no coaches there with them at the time. People nearby tried to dig them out, but it was too late.
