The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office says human remains found Saturday may be related to remains found earlier this summer inside a snow boot at a the Eldora Mountain Ski Resort – but authorities aren’t any closer to figuring out who they belong to.
On June 1, an employee of the resort found the boot near the base of the mountain while working in the area. The new remains were found about three-quarters of a mile outside the front gate of the resort.
Investigators say they don’t believe the remains belong to a missing 20-year-old man from Lafayette who worked at the resort. Family and friends of the man, who went missing in January after leaving work, also say they don’t think he owned that kind of boot.
