"Skibound has been informed that one person has died in the accident which happened earlier today in Alpe d’Huez. Regrettably this was one of the two British drivers taking the group of Skibound staff back to the UK at the end of the season.
"Twenty nine passengers have been taken to hospitals in the area - four are being treated for more serious injuries. The further 23 passengers have escaped injury and are now with police and counsellors in a local hotel.
"At the moment, Skibound's priority is to assist the victims of the accident and their relatives and to work with the authorities and medical assistance companies towards their eventual repatriation to the U.K. "
