Winter sports camp owner killed by falling snow

LEAVENWORTH, Wash. -- The owner of a winter sports camp was killed Saturday by snow that fell from an overloaded tree, according to police.

Chelan County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Kent Sisson said the body of Don Hansen was found Sunday morning after he was reported missing.

Hansen, who owned Scottish Lakes High Camp, was last seen Saturday afternoon with a backcountry ski group.

He told the group he was heading out to mark a trail and did not return.

Sisson said other workers at the camp found Hansen's body a few hours later about 100 yards from the camp.

Sisson said the camp, which is located west of Leavenworth, is several miles up the hills from Highway 2 and guests must snowmobile to the area this time of year.
