Police say a snowboarder died following an accident at Killington Ski Resort on Friday afternoon.
Skylar Ormond, 23, of Canandaigua, N.Y. was snowboarding with two friends in the area of Mouse Trap Trail when one of his friends fell in front of him. Ormond swerved to avoid hitting his friend and went into the woods. He was reported to have tumbled until he hit a tree.
The friends immediately contacted the ski patrol and Ormond was transported to the bottom of the mountain where he was taken by ambulance to the Rutland Regional Medical Center. He died from internal injuries after being transported.
