In a post, he wrote that he checked the forecast and wasn't too worried about an avalanche as several days had passed since the last storm, and the wind was keeping the snow cool. He further added, "Once I hit the first rock, I knew I had to keep my feet under me, for the rock in the middle was about to hit, my skis launched me into the wall. I was able to get my hands up and catch myself before hitting my face, likely popping my shoulder out at that time. I tried hard to keep my feet below me, knowing I had another rock band to clear. Miraculously I bounced over the last section of rocks into the snow."
After falling in the snow, Leeper hurt his shoulder and was rescued and brought to the emergency room by air. He also informed that he only had a few minor injuries.
