Nathan Enright of Larimer County, Colorado was snowboarding on a beginner trail at Keystone Resort when he collided with a tree. The injuries sustained in that collision proved fatal and two days later, 12/5/17– Enright was pronounced dead at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood.
The 21 year old had recently moved to northern Colorado from Illinois and was attending college in the area. He was new to snowboarding and according to the Summit Daily, was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. The coroner in question said the death was caused by severe head trauma.
