TV Actor Dies in Avalanche
« on: January 27, 2008, 04:16:06 AM »
...Christopher Allport, 60, of Santa Monica, was found Saturday morning, one of two people reported missing Friday after a trio of avalanches swept through off-trail canyons outside the Mountain High ski resort in Wrightwood.
A family member confirmed Allport had died but declined to give her name or comment further. Allport was a veteran character actor who had appeared on such TV shows as "ER," "Felicity," and "Matlock."

Allport wrote a story that appeared in the Los Angeles Times in 2004 about the pleasures of backcountry skiing. "Any excursion into the mountains requires awareness," he wrote. "Have fun, but be careful."
