HIGHMOUNT, N.Y. (AP) - The operators of an upstate New York ski resort say a Long Island man has died in a snowboarding accident at the mountain.

Jon Lundin, spokesman for Belleayre Mountain Ski Center in the Catskill Mountains, tells The Daily Freeman of Kingston (https://bit.ly/2jnWmza ) on Wednesday that 25-year-old Brian Conners of Centerport in Suffolk County was snowboarding on the Wanatuska Trail about 11 a.m. Saturday when he had an accident and died.

Lundin didn’t provide details of the accident, but said state police were investigating it.

Troopers haven’t released any information on the accident.

Belleayre, located in the Ulster County town of Shandaken, is a state owned and operated ski area 100 miles north of New York City.
