A 27-year-old snowboarder is dead following an accident at Whistler Blackcomb ski resort in B.C., Canada. The incident occurred yesterday just 3 days after the resort opened for the 2016 -2017 ski season.
Details of the accident have not yet been released, but it has been reported that the male snowboarder was found unresponsive in a gladed area near the Arthur’s Choice run at Blackcomb.

Canadian police are investigating the death and more information will be provided this week.
Whistler Blackcomb has seen 82″ (6.75′) of snow in the past 7 days.
