TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) - A 55-year-old skier who died after falling through a cornice in Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is being remembered as a humble man who was a fixture in Telluride’s mountain community.

Peter “Pi” Inglis fell through the cornice about 20 miles southeast of Chitina, near Tebay Lake, on Wednesday. He was guiding for Ultima Thule Lodge at the time.

Telluride Mountain Club President Tor Anderson says Inglis helped found the organization back in 1987. Inglis also worked for Telluride Ski Patrol for the past 22 years.

Anderson tells the Telluride Daily Planet newspaper (https://goo.gl/jZshzz ) that Inglis “was very well-loved and well-regarded as a mountaineer and snow scientist and a nice, humble, all-around good person.”
