COPS investigates the mysterious death of a skier who was found at the bottom of a 30ft mountain while his girlfriend was waiting for him at the bottom of a mountain.
The 21-year-old man and his friends jumped off a ski lift to ski down the mountain but never returned, Utah police said.
He was found dead at the Park City Mountain Resort at the base of the cliff on Friday, April 1, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office said.
The man, his girlfriend and another friend exited the King-Con elevator and descended the mountain, authorities said.
“When the girlfriend and boyfriend got to the end of the run, they waited for the now deceased to come down the mountain,” Lt. Andrew Wright.
“The friend got help from a slope attendant who radioed other patrols to go down the same slope to look for the 21-year-old.”
The man was eventually found at the foot of the cliff. There were no witnesses to the incident.
The man’s identity has not been released by authorities and his death is currently under investigation.
“Park City Mountain and the entire family at Vail Resorts extend our deepest sympathy and support to this guest’s family and friends,” said Mike Goar, vice president and chief operating officer of the report.
On February 26, a 54-year-old skier died while visiting the park. The Pennsylvania man was found dead on the mountain, police said.
Days earlier, on February 13, a 14-year-old died after being knocked unconscious at another Utah ski resort, this time Alta Ski Resort.
Also in February, a Colorado skier was found unconscious after crashing into a tree at Eldora Mountain Ski Resort. At least two others died during the ski season at the same resort.
In December, a 60-year-old died after crashing into a tree at the resort. He was given life-saving assistance, but he was pronounced dead in the first-aid room, police said.
