Death at Belleayre

Does anyone have any info on the 25-year old who died Saturday at Belleayre? I'm wondering if he went off the trail or hit his head on the snow.


  • HIGHMOUNT — The operators of an upstate New York ski resort say a Long Island man has died in a snowboarding accident at the mountain.

    Jon Lundin, spokesman for Belleayre Mountain Ski Center in the Catskill Mountains, tells The Daily Freeman of Kingston on Wednesday that 25-year-old Brian Conners of Centerport in Suffolk County was snowboarding on the Wanatuska Trail about 11 a.m. Saturday when he had an accident and died.

    Lundin didn't provide details of the accident, but said state police were investigating it.
