Snowboarder Dies At Sugar Bowl Ski Resort

DONNER SUMMIT (CBS13) – A snowboarder was killed Monday on a run at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort.

Justin McCullum, 20, of Roseville, was an employee of the resort and was riding with friends on the Strawberry Fields run at around 2:30 p.m. when he didn’t make it to the bottom. His friends apparently went back up and found him upside down in a tree well and called 911, according to Sgt. Paul Walker of the Placer County Sheriff’s Dept.

Ski patrol performed first aid on McCullum then brought him down the hill where he was pronounced dead.

The identity of the man has not been released pending notification of family.

Strawberry Fields is described as an advanced run.

    The identity of the man has not been released??? Try reading the second paragraph…looks like he was indeed identified. Some seriously bad repoting and could prove upsetting to his family and friends. Are we wrong to expect more from journalism?

      My thoughts exactly. It was a very short article as well, how can you miss that?

    This article is very upsetting, reminds me of some last minute copy and paste job kids in High School summit. Have we forgot how to proof-read and be respectful?
    Come on guys!!

    So sad… However, CBS13- let’s get the info straight…You released the identity of the man that you said wasn’t released. The ski patrol probably performed CPR not First Aid. Lastly, was the Placer County Sheriff you quoted named Paul or Kurt?? Check out the facts before printing…that’s basic journalism!!
