KEYSTONE, Colo. – The Summit County coroner says a skier is dead after being found in the trees off a run at Keystone ski resort.

Coroner Joanne Richardson said Thursday that Jennifer Agule of Breckenridge was found during sweeping operations at the resort at around 8 p.m. Wednesday. She was found near the intermediate Frenchman run.

The resort said someone called the ski patrol at about that time. Spokesman Ryan Whaley said ski patrolers found Agule shortly afterward and she was taken to Keystone Medical Center.

The coroner said Agule wasn’t wearing a helmet and appeared to have suffered severe blunt force trauma.
