LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have identified a 20-year-old Las Vegas man who died in a snowboarding accident at a southern Nevada ski resort.

Clark County coroner’s officials say Christopher Jeffery Ruby died at University Medical Center after incident midday Tuesday at the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort.

The cause of death and the nature of the accident weren’t immediately clear.

Clark County spokesman Erik Pappa says the ski patrol helped the man until Nevada Division of Forestry and volunteer firefighters reached him.

He died a few hours after being airlifted to the hospital.

Officials from the resort issued a statement saying staff members were devastated by the accident, and their thoughts and prayers were with Ruby’s family.
