Skiing is a very popular winter sport, especially in New England. While skiing can be a lot of fun, accidents can occur. Many of the accidents are what one might consider normal skiing accidents such as falling when getting off a chairlift and breaking a bone or staining a muscle.
Everyone who goes skiing should know there are risks associated with the sport. However, some skiing accidents, while they don't occur frequently, are much more serious and can result in death of a skier.
According to recent news article from the Lowell Sun, a 13-year-old boy was killed at ski resort in Massachusetts. Authorities say young victim had died when he hit a tree in what appears to be this particular ski resort's first fatal accident in its operational history.
