JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) -- An avalanche has killed a snowboarder just outside the boundary of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Resort officials say the avalanche happened around 12:50 p.m. Thursday. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene at about 1:30 p.m. Resort officials weren't releasing the identity of the male victim.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the slide happened at about 10,300 feet on an east-facing slope called the Pucker Face.

Others who were with the snowboarder saw the slide happen and dug him out of the snow. Attempts to revive the victim were unsuccessful.
