Dave Treadway was a Canadian professional freeskier. He died while skiing backcountry in Pemberton, British Columbia, when he skied over a snow bridge and fell into a crevasse. The snow bridge was not visible and had been weakened from spring weather. Treadway was recovered by search and rescue teams but had already passed away. He was described as a role model and a youth leader in his community. He is survived by his wife Tessa, who is pregnant, and two sons, Kasper, 6, and Raffi, 2.

A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help the family.

We invite you to share condolences for Dave Treadway in our Guest Book.

Dave was an inspirational force in my son, Tony Saracellis, life. Now their spirits soar together in ski heaven. One year ago he died in an avalanche, like Dave, living the passion of his life. My heart joins yours in grief as well as in the joyous memories they brought us.

Dave, I hope the mountains are amazing in heaven.

Treadway family, you have been in my prayers since I heard the news. I was so fortunate to spend a month at Rockridge Canyon with Dave, man was that ever a blessing. Not only is he a great guy but such a leader! I've never met such a beautiful family with such a great love for God. My condolences are with you Tessa, Kasper, Raffi & Baby. I pray that God guides you in the direction that will give you strength. You two inspired me to be a kind, loving, god filled, adventuress person.

I will forever remember Dave, especially on the Rockridge water front.

Thank you Dave.
