A 22-Year-Old Skier Died After Hitting A Tree At Arizona Snowbowl Monday Morning

A 22-year-old skier was killed after the man struck a tree while skiing at Arizona Snowbowl Monday morning. Coconino County Sheriff’s officials received a report of the accident at around 11 a.m. Officials say the man was initially skiing on the “Upper Ridge” run, which is labeled with a “black diamond” or “most difficult” terrain rating. The skier is believed to have skied just outside a boundary line and struck a tree. Other skiers in the area apparently noticed the crash and notified ski patrol personnel. They responded and attempted lifesaving efforts. The patient was taken to the nearest first aid station where lifesaving efforts continued, but were unsuccessful and was pronounced dead. The skier’s name had not been released, pending notification of next of kin. The incident remains under investigation.
