STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — A 24-year-old man was killed in a weekend snowmobile crash near Steamboat Springs.
Routt County officials say Hayden Savage of Oak Creek died Saturday when his snowmobile veered off a county road and crashed into a stand of trees near Stagecoach Reservoir, south of Steamboat Springs and east of Oak Creek.
Undersheriff Doug Scherar said authorities were notified about 3 p.m. Saturday. Two Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officers were the first to arrive and attempted CPR but were unable to revive Savage.
Scherar tells the Steamboat Pilot & Today that Savage was not wearing a helmet.
Savage was well-known in the community for his involvement with Routt County Riders, where he has worked the past several years building mountain biking trails in the area.
