KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A 23-year-old skier from New Hampshire has died after losing control on an intermediate trail at a Vermont resort and crashing into trees.

State police say Terence Scott, of Nashua, was skiing down the mountain with family and friends Saturday afternoon at Killington Resort when he crashed, losing his helmet in the process.

Police say Scott was immediately attended to by an emergency medical technician, a doctor and a nurse. He was unconscious throughout treatment and was pronounced dead at the mountain.

Scott was described as an expert skier. Witnesses tell police that just before the crash, Scott was speeding down the hill and had tried to turn onto a connector trail while avoiding another skier.
