SHERIFF’S OFFICE SEEKS THE PUBLIC’S ASSISTANCE IN SKIER COLLISION
SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – On Saturday, January 5, 2019 at approximately 7:12 p.m. the Summit County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a victim of a skier collision that had taken place earlier that day at approximately 12:30 p.m. on Reverie Ski Run on Peak 6 at Breckenridge Ski Resort. An unidentified juvenile male skier skiing with his father reportedly collided with the victim who then skied into a tree. The juvenile skier and father left the scene without providing name and contact information. Based upon the reported information this would be a violation of the Skier Safety Act law which requires all skiers/boarders involved in a collision to stop, exchange information and summon aid.
This case is under active investigation and no further information is being released at this time.
Witnesses and anyone with information about this collision are encouraged to contact Detective Sergeant Robert Pearce at 970-423-8925.
