Sad news to report. 19-year-old Joshua Halberg was snowboarding at Mount Hood Meadows on Saturday when he attempted a jump that ended up costing him his life.

Joshua apparently landed on his head, although he was wearing a helmet. The accident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. He was taken to Hood River Providence Medical Center, and then died while being transferred to a hospital in Portland.

Our deep condolences go out to all who knew and loved Joshua Halberg.
