The body of a 20-year-old snowboarder from Caledon was found at Blue Mountain resort near Collingwood early Wednesday.

Family members have identified him as Taylor Ogram.

Provincial police say Ogram's friends reported him missing around 1 a.m. and his body was located about half an hour later on a ski hill.

The snowboarder was found in a wooded area on an intermediate run with life threatening injuries. He was wearing a helmet.

Ogram was pronounced dead at hospital.

He was at the resort enjoying reading week with friends. 

Ashley Boland, a Blue Mountain rep, says it happened on the Sunrise run but had no further details.

She says OPP are at the site and resort officials would have no additional comment since they are waiting for the police to complete their investigation.

``This is a very tragic thing for Blue Mountain and the family ... and out of respect for the OPP's process, we'd like to refrain from any further comment,'' Boland said.
