The man reportedly got into an argument with a couple in a lift line at Keystone Resort Monday morning, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
The couple and the man met again while on the hill, when the younger man reportedly “snow sprayed” the older woman. Her husband, stating he was trying to stop the young man from hitting his wife, sped up behind the younger man and all three crashed, according to the report.
