Charterhouse teacher Ed How killed in Val D'Isere skiing accident
A teacher at a prestigious independent school has died following a skiing accident in the French Alps, the school said today.
Ed How, a chemistry teacher at Charterhouse school in Godalming, Surrey, is understood to have fallen 200 metres down cliffs while going off-piste at Val D'Isere yesterday.
A spokeswoman for Charterhouse said: "The School learnt yesterday that one of its teachers, Ed How, had been killed in a skiing accident while on holiday with his family.
"Ed was 37, married with a baby. He was very popular, and an outstanding and highly respected teacher (Chemistry) and sportsman.
"This is a great shock to the school and our thoughts and prayers are with Ed's family."
Mr How is the second Briton in two weeks to die at the French resort.
Thomas Lynch, 22, from Leicestershire, also died following a skiing accident there last week.
