A 29 year-old man from Massachusetts was killed in a skiing accident at Cannon Mountain over the weekend, according to New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Late Saturday,Trevor Hennessey of Holden Massachusetts was reported missing by his family said Lt. James Kneeland. After his vehicle was found in a parking lot, a search was started and continued through the night.

About 8 a.m. Hennessey’s body was found in the woods near the Upper Ravine Trail.

Kneeland said Hennessey missed a sharp turn and struck a tree.

The body was found about 40 feet off the trail.

The medical examiner determined the cause of death was massive head trauma, according to John DeVivo, the general manager at Cannon Mountain. Hennessey was not wearing a helmet.

An earlier version of this story included incorrect information about deaths at Cannon. This was the third skiing-related death in the last nine years, not the third in the last four years.
