PRINCETON — A skier died after crashing into a tree on Wachusett Mountain Monday morning.
The skier, a 67-year-old man from Shrewsbury, was on the Oxbow Chute – an expert trail – when he crashed into a tree at about 9:25 a.m.
State police say the man was found unresponsive by a skier who happened to pass him following the crash, NBC Boston reports.
