Spokeswoman Darcy Lambert said the crash was reported around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Three teens were using an inflatable tube on the Tempest Trail. The two victims were on the tube together when they slid off the trail and hit a tree, said Oxford county Sheriff’s Office.

Sledding is not allowed on ski trails, and the mountain was closed at the time.

The three were sledding on the Tempest Trail, which is steeper than most sledding hills, said Resort spokeswoman Darcy Lambert. Part of it is rated as a black diamond for expert skiers, and part is rated as a blue for intermediate skiers.

“The accident resulted in the death of one subject and another subject was seriously injured and transported to a medical facility,” according to Chief Deputy Hart Daley. “The investigation is ongoing. With respect to involved family members, the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office will not be releasing any additional information at this time and we extend our condolences to the families of those involved.”
