KILLINGTON, Vt. — Authorities say a snowboarder from western New York hit a tree after swerving to miss a friend who fell on a trail at the Killington Ski Resort in Vermont and later died.

The Burlington Free Press reports that 23-year-old Skylar Ormond, of Canandaigua, N.Y., was snowboarding on Mouse Trap Trail with two friends around 3:15 p.m. Friday. Vermont State Police say one of the friends fell and Ormond swerved to miss him. He went into the woods and tumbled before hitting a tree.

His friends contacted the ski patrol and Ormond was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center. Police say he died there from internal injuries.
