Feb 18, 2012

A snow-machine crash has claimed the life of a Sunapee man. NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.


A 36-year-old Sunapee man died Saturday morning in a snow machine crash near Stewartstown.

Fish and Game said the victim was Jason Montambeault who had been riding about 1:30 in the morning with two friends near Piper Hill.

The friends last saw him crossing a field near his camp.

When he didn’t arrive a few hours later they thought he had gone to visit friends.

But shortly after dawn they were worried and a search began.

About 9 a.m. a cousin found his body and overturned snow machine.
