Patrick Lepeudry, co-founder of Skiset, the French-based ski rental company, sustained severe injuries in a helicopter crash in Courchevel, a ski resort town in the French Alps, in the afternoon of Feb. 9. The accident occurred between the Rosière lake and the Dent du Villard mountain at an altitude of 1,900 meters, the prefecture said in a statement. Two holidaymakers died in the crash and two more passengers were injured. The civilian Bell 206B JetRanger III helicopter, built in 1988, reportedly belongs to Lepeudry, who was also piloting it. Lepeudry, polytraumatized, was transported to a hospital in Grenoble. His vital prognosis was no longer engaged by the early evening. Lepeudry is also the president of Courchevel Commerces.
