A Texas family’s holiday vacation in Silverton took a tragic turn on Christmas Day when a 39-year-old woman was killed in a sled crash at Kendall Mountain Ski Area.
Tammy Lynn Woodfin, of Joaquin, Texas, was killed when she hit a signpost at the bottom of the town-owned ski hill after being ejected from the plastic sled, said San Juan County Undersheriff Kristine Burns.
The accident occurred at about 5 p.m. Christmas Day, after the ski area had closed.
Burns said in her incident report that Woodfin and her family were sledding on the ski run parallel to the ski lift at Kendall. The family had arrived in Silverton on Christmas Eve, according to the victim’s husband, Robert Woodfin.
