The death of a skier at a commercial field on Mt Ruapehu two weeks ago could have been prevented had the hazards of soft snow to be expected in spring been better managed.

The NZ Herald reports the view of a witness to the incident, who helped fill in a hole in the snow which it is believed the skier struck, causing him to lose his balance at speed.
