Authorities have identified a man killed last week in a snowboarding accident at a Northern California ski resort.

The Placer County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 43-year-old Michael North, of New Canaan, Connecticut.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports North was found dead at Northstar California on Feb. 23 after reportedly falling headfirst into a tree well.

The resort said in a statement its ski patrol responded to an incident on "advanced terrain," where the guest had been snowboarding at the resort. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
