Park City Mountain Resort Director of Communications Margo Van Ness confirmed to Gephardt Daily that ski patrol responded to a “ski incident” on an intermediate trail near Canyons Village. 

“Park City Mountain regretfully confirms a serious incident which took place on the mountain yesterday, Dec. 31, involving a 20-year-old male from Sherman Oaks, CA,” said a statement from the resort. “After further emergency care and evaluation, the man was pronounced deceased by AirMed.” 

Park City Mountain Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Mike Goar, added: “Park City Mountain, Park City Mountain Ski Patrol and the entire Vail Resorts family extend our deepest sympathy and support to our guest’s family and friends.”
