EL DORADO COUNTY (CBS13/AP) – Authorities have confirmed a 34-year-old British man was killed while snowboarding last week at Lake Tahoe’s Heavenly Mountain Resort

El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies say Christopher Michael Perring of Great Britain tried to avoid running into someone else but hit a sign post and suffered blunt force trauma to his chest at about 3 p.m. on Jan. 17.

Lt. Les Lovell says Perring was taken to the Sky Meadows area of the resort for medical treatment, but was pronounced dead before an emergency medical helicopter could arrive.
