The family of a 15-year-old high school sophomore, Christopher DiPrima, has announced that he passed away due to a ‘freak accident at a ski resort in New Hampshire.

The incident occurred Saturday night at Pats Peak Ski Area in Henniker, 90 miles north of East Boston.

He was skiing with his family, including his cousin Steven Gingras, on the Duster ski trail at Pats Peak Ski Area when the tragedy occurred at approximately 6:35 p.m.

Gingras reported that Christopher had hit a bump, landed incorrectly, and complained of chest pains before his death. He had only begun skiing last year and was familiar with the trail. However, the cause of his death remains unknown.

Christopher was taken to the base area for a rescue squad and then transported to Concord Hospital, where he sadly passed away.

Christopher was a student at Excel Academy Charter High School in Boston and had previously graduated from Excel Academy Greenway. The school posted a tribute on their Facebook page stating, “Christopher was a kind and caring person who brought joy to everyone he met. He will be truly missed.”

The General Manager of Pats Peak, Kris Blomback, offered sympathies to Christopher’s family during this difficult time.

Those who knew Christopher described him as intelligent and a film fanatic with a newfound interest in skiing and a love for technology. Steven Gingras had a message to the public when speaking to the media, to not take for granted their time with their loved ones.
