Atlantic Beach fire chief dies after skiing accident

Atlantic Beach says the town’s fire chief died Monday afternoon from injuries sustained in a recent skiing accident.

The accident happened Saturday while on a trip with his family to Wintergreen Resort in Virginia.

Adam Snyder, 47, served in the Atlantic Beach Fire Department for 20 years including the last 15 years as Chief.

He is a United States Marine Corps veteran where he served as a rescue swimmer.

During his tenure as Fire Chief, the Atlantic Beach Fire Department achieved levels of certification and received awards that were nearly unprecedented for a small-town department. These accomplishments earned Chief Snyder’s department one of the highest fire department ratings in the country.

Funeral arrangements will be made by Munden Funeral Home in Morehead City.
