Skier Dies After Crystal Mountain Accident

CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN - A 22-year-old man from Sammamish is dead after a skiing accident at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort.

Three men were skiing together when they decided to go over a jump. The first two made it okay but the third, Scott William Breier, flew into a tree.

Medics tried to call in a medevac, but weather conditions made it impossible for a helicopter to reach the scene.

They had to take him down the mountain to Greenwater where he was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.

Breier was pronounced dead at Harborview. Medics say Breier was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
