Skier Killed During Filming Steep Promo for Ubisoft

Professional 'extreme' skier Matilda Rapaport has died due to injuries sustained after being caught in an avalanche in Chile while filming a live-action promotional ad for Ubisoft's upcoming game 'Steep'. The accident took place in the Andes Mountains near the town of Farellones. Despite medical care after the accident, Rapaport succumbed to her injuries several days later. 

"Matilda's courage, passion, and desire to share the sport she loved with the world served as an inspiration for other athletes and for us all. This tragic accident has deeply touched us. Our hearts and prayers go out to her husband and her wider family at this difficult time."

Our condolences to Ms. Rapaport's family and friends.
