Ski legend Hilaree Nelson is missing on Mount Manaslu
Big mountain skier Hilaree Nelson, 49, was recently seen getting close to Manaslu’s top as her partner Jim Marrison flew down. This morning, the Himalayan Times broke the story.
She reportedly fell into a crevice while Nelson and Morrison were beginning to ski down from the genuine peak of Manaslu. According to The Times, she plunged about 25 meters into a chasm.
