Mimi Watts, the British snowboarder that was involved in a horrific accident in Chamonix this weekend, has tragically died after spending days on a life support machine.

Mimi, 26, from Suffolk, was surrounded by her parents Nicky and Dominic and her brother Rory, who were at her bedside in France, when she died.

The winter sports community will no doubt all be thinking of the family and friends of Mimi Watts after such a saddening event.

Mimi’s accident occurred on the opening day of the ski season in Chamonix (8 Dec 2012), when she fell into a snowdrift off the side of a piste.

She was stuck in the drift for 45 minutes and had suffered a cardiac arrest before being taken to hospital in Annecy via a helicopter.

Mimi was a design student from Suffolk and went to her local convent in Bury St Edmunds before studying costume design at Sussex University. Her father is a farmer and her mother works as an accountant.

She was described as having a ‘lust for life’ and had texted her mother the day before the accident to say that she had found a job and that she was “very happy”. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends at this hard time.
