Skier Dies At Sun Valley
Officials with the Sun Valley Resort say a male skier has died after colliding with a tree.
Resort spokesman Jack Sibbach tells the Idaho Mountain Express that the ski patrol responded to a report of an “unconscious and unresponsive” skier on an intermediate ski run on Bald Mountain just after 11 a.m. Wednesday. The skier could not be revived and was pronounced dead by the Blaine County coroner at 11:19 a.m. Sibbach said the resort could not release the identity of the victim, who was in ski area boundaries. The death is still under investigation. A skier died in an avalanche on Bald Mountain in January 2010.
