BOZEMAN, Mont. — A 29-year-old man died after a fall while snowboarding at Montana’s Big Sky Resort, authorities said Friday.
Chandler Pelletier, 29, of Belgrade, Mont. died after he reportedly fell while snowboarding in an area of steep terrain known as the North Summit Snowfield, the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office said.
An investigation into the cause and manner of Chandler’s death was ongoing.
Park City resident Mikayla Willis was critically injured while competing in the Freeride World Qualifiers in Big Sky on Wednesday.
Due to being in Montana at the time of her accident, Willis’s family insurance policy is stating the coverage is ‘out of network.’
A Go Fund Me page is live to offset the medical costs to the family, and they are hoping the community can come together to help during this difficult time.
