ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A snowboarder who died after crashing into a tree at Colorado’s Aspen Highlands Ski Area has been identified as 42-year-old Trevor Crandall of Denver.

Crandall’s name was released Thursday by the Pitkin County Coroner’s Office, which ruled his death was accidental.

Pitkin County sheriff’s officials have said Crandall was with a friend when he crashed in the Highlands Bowl on Wednesday afternoon. Ski patrollers performed CPR after finding him unconscious, but he was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

No one saw the accident, but rescuers determined he had crashed into a tree.
