A 15-year-old skier died today at Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort in Idaho.  It happened shortly after noon.  A group of snowboarders found the skier, who had fallen in a tree well, and had remained hidden because of low lying branches.  By the time patrolmen reached the boy he was unresponsive.

“Our hearts and prayers are with the family during this time as they attempt to cope with this unfortunate situation,” said Schweitzer CEO Tom Chasse.
