Read Time:2 Minute, 7 Second


A press release issued by the Austrian Tyrol police stated that a 38-year-old Slovenian man was injured in the head in a snowboarding accident on Tuesday.

According to the statement, when the snowboarder without a helmet fell and hit a snow-covered rock, the man was a member of a filming team exploring the terrain.

The statement concluded that despite the efforts of his team and resort employees to resuscitate the Slovenian man, the victim died on the spot.

Two Grilc sponsors-Burton Snowboards and GoPro-confirmed the skier’s death via Twitter on Wednesday.

“We share with a heavy heart that yesterday, our dear friend and Burton Racing driver Marko “Grilo” Grilc died unexpectedly while skiing,” Burton Snowboard Tweet.

“Our hearts are with his fiancé Nina and their children, family and friends. They all share his love and passion for snowboarding.”

A sort of statement GoPro wrote: “We are sad to hear the news of Marko Grilc’s death. He is a well-loved member of the GoPro family, who inspires us not only as a professional athlete, but also as a father and an amazing person. .

“He is a legend and will be truly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Grilc competed during the 2010 FIS World Cup for LG Snowboard in London.

Glick’s fiancée and two children survived.

Grilc was born in Ljubljana and has become a well-known figure in the freestyle snowboarding world during his long career.

According to the International Ski Federation (FIS) website, the Slovenian made his debut at the Finnish International Ski Federation Junior World Championships in 2002.

In 11 years of competitive career, Glick has won a total of 9 podium records-the 2004 Croatia European Cup and the 2010 London World Cup Big Air victory.

His last competition was at the 2013 World Cup held in Mount Copper, Colorado, and Grilc then entered various snowboard-related filming companies.

The 38-year-old has documented many of his travels on his YouTube channel, and his last video “disconnected”-released earlier this year-shows him on the border with Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro Time of skiing in the Prokletije mountains.

“Snowboarding is very simple, basically using a piece of wood to cut from the mountain,” Glick said at the end of the video.

“It’s just that the motivation you get from riding, the motivation from being sick, and the happiness I see here is unreal. I believe this group of people will have stories to tell in the next few years.”
