A 24-year-old northern Colorado man was killed in a weekend snowmobile crash.

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 says authorities were notified at 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.
