(BCN) - A 40-year-old Vallejo man who was reported missing after snowboarding at a North Lake Tahoe resort was found dead Wednesday, the Placer County Sheriff's Office said Saturday.
The man, whose name has not been released, got on a Northstar California Resort ski lift on Monday, authorities said.
When he didn't return from the trip, his family reported him missing on Wednesday, said Placer County Sgt. Dave Hunt.
The man's car was still in the parking lot covered with snow, and teams searched the mountain. His body was found by a ski patrol, Hunt said. Especially high snow levels have created hazards for skiers and snowboarders this year, Hunt said.
