Christopher Michael Perring from Great Britain died last Tuesday, January 17, at Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Perring was snowboarding near the Tamarack Express chair when he hit a sign post, causing blunt force trauma to his face and chest. Perring reportedly was trying to avoid someone when he veered into the sign.
Perring was taken to the Sky Meadows area where he received medical treatment and waited for a medical helicopter. He was pronounced dead at the scene before a helicopter could arrive. Perring was 34 years old.
