TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. (AP) - A skier is dead after hitting a tree at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

The resort said the 31-year-old man suffered “significant trauma” while skiing in an area called the Parachutes on Monday. Spokeswoman Anna Cole says the man hit a tree and then fell, landing about 40 feet below the tree.

The death is being investigated by the Teton County sheriff and the resort’s ski patrol.

The man’s name hasn’t been released yet.

Resort president Jerry Blann extended the sympathies of the staff to the man’s family and friends.
