Family members say a Douglas County woman was killed after colliding with a snowboarder and being knocked into a tree while skiing at Heavenly Resort.

A Heavenly spokeswoman says the ski patrol responded that morning around 10:30 a.m. and found the woman unresponsive. 
 
Tuttle was flown to a hospital in Reno where according to the family she died the next day after being taken off life support.
 
Heavenly in a statement says she was not wearing a helmet.
 
Tuttle was born in Boston and attended the University of Nevada, Reno. She worked as an accountant for the state of Nevada.  (AP)
