Help us find the GoPro of avalanche victim Martijn!

By Arjen on 16 May 2017 · 0

Martijn (from The Netherlands) got into an avalanche in Sölden (Austria) on Monday March the 13th. Unfortunately, he died of his injuries a few days later. During his last descent he carried a GoPro camera. This camera has been lost and hasn't been found yet. Martijn's friends and family would like to get the GoPro with the latest photos and videos of Martijn back. Thus a call:

Help us find the GoPro of avalanche victim Martijn!

The camera is a GoPro Hero 4 (check out the picture below). As mentioned before, it all happened in Sölden and more specifically on the Roten Karle, an off-piste run that eventually ends in the Rettenbach Valley. Perhaps the GoPro is still somewhere underneath the snow, maybe someone has found it.

Please share this post!!

Our request to you is to share this post. We hope that the GoPro will be found and that it will help the family and friends of Martijn with this terrible loss. If you find the GoPro you can contact Peter Kempen ( or +31 6 43757413). There's a reward, but honestly, that shouldn't be the motivation to get this camera back. Thanks for helping everybody!
