A missing Carbondale man was found dead Thursday evening after a two-day search at Snowmass Resort, according to the Pitkin County news release.
Rescue personnel found David Cross, 32, deceased in “very hazardous terrain” in the West Willow area off Snowmass Ski Area, according to the release.
Cross had snowboarded into difficult backcountry terrain that can be accessed near Hanging Valley Wall at Snowmass. Snowmass Ski Patrol located the body by following a single track in the snow.
An attempt to recover the body will take place Friday. Difficult terrain, time constraints and safety concerns prevented a recovery mission on Thursday, according to the release.
Cross was last seen alive at 11:50 a.m. Tuesday boarding the resort’s Village Express lift; a friend reported him missing Tuesday afternoon but search efforts were unsuccessful on Tuesday and Wednesday.
