GOLD BAR, Wash. (AP) - The Gold Bar Fire Department says a skier has died at Stevens Pass.

Lt. Brandon Vargas tells The Seattle Times (https://bit.ly/1j6LsHE ) that the man in his 30s appears to have hit rocks while skiing Monday morning. His name was not released.

Vargas says the agency responded to a report that the skier had gone into cardiac arrest from his injuries. Ski patrol did CPR and took the man off the mountain. Medical responders from King County Fire District 50 met the rescue team and also tried to resuscitate the man.

An investigation by the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office is ongoing.
