GLENWOOD SPRINGS – The arraignment for the snowboarder accused of crashing into a ski class of 5- to 7-year-olds at Sunlight Mountain Resort on March 15 was continued on Thursday until May 22.

Michael Wolff, 20, of Killeen, Texas, has remained in Garfield County Jail on a $15,000 bond since his arrest shortly after the crash.

Wolff’s public defender, James Conway, asked 9th District Judge James Boyd for more time to enter a plea for Wolff.

Three children were hurt in the crash: One suffered a broken leg, one suffered a bruised arm and the third had minor injuries.

Wolff is charged with felony child abuse, misdemeanor child abuse, two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of underage possession or consumption of alcohol.

If convicted on all counts, Wolff could face five to 18 years in prison and more than $750,000 in fines.
