A skier from New Jersey died after colliding with a tree at Park City Mountain Resort on Monday, the Park City Police Department said.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, said William Kivet was skiing on the Silver King run with a friend when he skied off a groomed section of the trail and into the trees. The trail is rated expert.
The resort’s ski patrol transported him to a clinic at the base of PCMR. A doctor at the clinic pronounced him dead, Kirk said.
