Default Death at Mt Hood Meadows

Portland snowboarder, 15, dies at Mt. Hood Meadows |

The Hood River County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 15-year-old snowboarder.

A Portland boy, who was not identified, was discovered lying face down in the snow at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort at 9:24 p.m. on Wednesday. The lifts closed at 9 p.m. and members of the ski patrol were clearing the slopes when they discovered his body near the North Canyon trail.

After trying to resuscitate him, they took him to a medical clinic at the resort. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

The sheriff's office said he boarded a lift at 9 p.m. He was not wearing a helmet when he was found.

The boy was with relatives on Mount Hood but they did not witness the accident. The sheriff’s office is investigating.

He’s the fourth snowboarder to die at Mt. Hood Meadows this year — the most ever.

In February, Kyle Cryblskey, a 23-year-old from Vancouver, died from a head injury following a jump at Rose City Terrain Park. In March, Levi Krukowski, 18 of Portland, fell 40 feet into a snow crevasse in Heather Canyon, landing in a creek. Then in April, Joshua Halberg, a 19-year-old from Battle Ground, Wash., died enroute to the hospital following an accident while attempting an inverted aerial maneuver at Park Place.
Sobering news, my thoughts and positive vibes go out to the kids family.
Details of what happened have not been released and are still under investigation.
