PORTLAND A 17-year-old Sandy girl was found dead after a snowboarding accident at Skibowl Friday night.

Taylur Dewolf was reported missing at around 10:30 p.m. Friday, according to Sgt. James Rhodes of the Clackamas County Sheriff s Office. Her family and friends said they had last seen her three hours earlier.

Rescue crews found her body near Dog Leg Run at about 11:05 p.m., Rhodes said. She had apparently lost control while snowboarding at a very high rate of speed, and had run into a tree just off of the groomed run.

She suffered severe trauma to her head and chest. Investigators said she was wearing a helmet.

John Vermas, at Skibowl, said it was the first death at the resort since 1996.
