15 Year Old Snowboarder Dies After Accident

Mt. Rose, NV…15 year old Galena High School Sophomore, Maison T. Ortiz has died  after a freak accident at Mt. Rose Ski Area.  On a very icy run Ortiz and a friend decided it would be safer to walk down the run.  They removed their snowboards and helmets and were walking down when Maison slipped and slide into a tree.

He was medi-flighted to a local hospital with serious head injuries.  He subsequently lost his battle for life.   The accident occurred early Wednesday afternoon.

From all of us at Lakesidenews.net our thoughts and prayers to his family.
