Police say a 28-year-old Boyceville man was unconscious when they arrived at the scene. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

After a preliminary crash investigation done by Dunn County Sheriff's deputies, it was determined the snowmobile operator was southbound on a designated snowmobile trail. The investigation suggests the operator lost control of the snowmobile, left the trail and he was ejected.
