Summit County authorities are looking for a snowboarder accused of running into a skier Monday at Keystone Ski Resort, leaving her with severe leg injuries that required a five-hour surgery.
The county sheriff’s office says the crash happened about 3 p.m. at the ski area’s Haywood intermediate trail near the base. The unidentified snowboarder hit the woman and left the scene without providing his name and contact information.
