Fatal snowboarding accident victim identified as Vallejo man


The Placer County Sheriff’s Office has identified a Vallejo man who was found dead at a ski resort near Lake Tahoe as 40-year-old Danieson Crowder.

Crowder went solo snowboarding on March 11 and he was reported missing Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office. A Northstar California Resort ski patrol began searching inside the resort while the Placer County Sheriff’s Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue team began searching outside of it. The ski patrol found Crowder Wednesday upside down in a tree well, deep and loose snow at the base of a tree.

Placer County sheriff’s Sgt. Dave Hunt said especially high snow levels have created hazards for skiers and snowboarders this year.
