Dave Treadway Canadian Freeskier
Treadway profile on SBCSkier.com referred to him as “one of the most influential skiers of our time.” The bio further read that “Dave and his wife Tessa are continually hunting adventures, slaying big-big-big lines and traveling the globe.”
He was quoted saying that his second favorite place to ski in Canada was the Pemberton Big-Mountain Hunting Club in the Pemberton Back Country although his number one location was with his family at Troll Mountain.

In recent years, Treadway had drifted away from professional skiing and had become devoted to his family. On his Instagram bio, Treadway wrote, “The FAMILY that PLAYS together, STAYS together!” This was Treadway’s final Instagram post:

His death was confirmed in a post on the skier’s official website that read, “April 16, 2019: We’ve learned that Dave Treadway, an incredible skier, and a monumental human, has passed away after an accident near Rhododendron Mountain, Pemberton.”
In a statement to Global News, Treadway’s aunt, Kate Treadway-Elinsky said that her nephew had been living with his family in the area around Pemberton where he was filming a movie, titled “Free Range Family.” Rescue services were called to Rhododendron Mountain on April 15th after hearing reports that a skier had fallen into a 98-foot-deep crevasse. The Pemberton Search and Rescue team required support from the Whistler team in order to extract Treadway from the crevasse.
Head of Pemberton’s Search and Rescue team, David MacKenzie said in an interview with Pique News Magazine that the deceased skier had run into difficult conditions due to the warming climate.
MacKenzie further stated, “There are crevasses all over the backcountry and in the glacial area. Various ones may have an ice bridge over them or something, and some of them can be sight unseen.” MacKenzie continued to describe the means of retrieving a person from the crevasse, describing it as a “very technical operation.” He said, the difficulty of getting rescuers into the crevasse is one thing, but it is even more difficult to pull them back out along with the subject.
