She was skiing with family and friends around 11 a.m. on the Lower Rim Run Trail when she lost control and struck a trail sign, according to Vermont State Police.

Bowers was pronounced dead at Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin.

Annie Stevens, vice provost for student affairs at the University of Vermont, sent an e-mail Sunday to the university community informing them of Bowers’s death and offering the school’s condolences to her family and friends.

“Kendra was doing something she loved and was surrounded by friends and family at the time of the accident,” Stevens wrote.
