Pats Peak Ski Patrol arrived soon after hearing about the accident, and transported the boy, Christopher DiPrima to the base area, where the Henniker Rescue Squad was waiting. The boy was then taken to Concord Hospital, said officials.

DiPrima succumbed to his injuries at Concord Hospital, said officials.

“Our sympathies go out to his family during this difficult time," said Kris Blomback, General Manager of Pats Peak in a statement. "The staff of Pats Peak is saddened by the incident last night and the investigation is ongoing."
