Police in Snowmass Village have confirmed an 11-year-old girl was injured Saturday after an intoxicated skier crashed into her. The Denver Channel reports Snowmass Village Police Department responded to Snowmass Ski Area on Saturday after receiving a report that an intoxicated skier had collided into another person.
When police arrived on scene both skiers where present. They believed 25-year-old Jordan Vuckovich of Denver was impaired and had crashed into an 11-year-old girl. The girl was transported to a hospital with injuries. Her condition is unknown as of this morning.
Vuckovich was cited for violating the Colorado Skiers Safety Act, which is a class 2 petty offense. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, this is an unfortunate reminder of the consequences of skiing drunk. We wish the girl a speedy recovery and advice everyone to keep it sober on the slopes.
