BRIGHTON -- Authorities have identified a 26-year-old snowboarder who died after he apparently crashed into a tree at Brighton Ski Resort.
Police say Sandy resident David Sitek was pronounced dead after he was found wrapped around a tree about 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal says a skier discovered Sitek on an intermediate run at the resort, and contacted the ski patrol when the man didn't respond to him.
Hoyal says emergency responders were unable to revive the snowboarder.
KSL reports Sitek was found on a run that's located near the top of the resort and is open for night skiing.
