A 19-year-old Whitman College student dies in a skiing accident.

It happened Saturday around noon. Dayton Sheriff's believe he was a member of the Whitman College Ski Club, a student organization, and was skiing with fellow club members at Ski Bluewood, a ski resort located in Columbia County about 20 miles outside of Dayton. 

Sheriff's say he slipped up on a slope and ran into a tree where he suffered from head injuries. They will not release his name until all family is notified.
