A 17-year-old girl died after skiing into a tree Wednesday on an intermediate trail at Winter Park Resort.
The ski area says the collision happened at about 12:30 p.m. on Forget-Me-Not, a run in the resort’s Parsenn Bowl.
“Ski Patrol responded immediately and transported the woman to the Denver Health East Grand ER at the base of the resort, where continued efforts to revive her proved unsuccessful,” Winter Park said in a news release.
No other skiers or snowboarders were involved in the crash.
“Winter Park Resort extends its deepest condolences to the woman’s family in the wake of this tragic accident,” the release said.
The girl’s name and hometown have not been released.
The girl is the fourth ski crash death — the third involving a tree — to be reported on Colorado’s slopes this season.
