PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — A 65-year-old skier from Florida is dead after hitting a tree at Utah’s Deer Valley Resort.
Officials with the Park City resort say the ski patrol responded to the crash about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday on the intermediate-level Keno run.
Rescuers were unable to revive the man, who had been wearing a helmet.
