TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - Placer County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a 35-year-old ski instructor who was killed in a skiing accident over the weekend at a mountain resort north of Lake Tahoe.

Sgt. David Hunt said Monday that Dennis Baltimore of Kings Beach, California died Sunday after he hit several rocks and crashed into a creek at the Northstar California resort near Truckee.

Nadia Guerriero, the resort’s vice president and general manager, said the Northstar ski patrol responded to an accident on a beginning trail and assisted the Northstar Fire Department in providing emergency treatment before fire officials pronounced him dead.

Hunt said the sheriff’s office is awaiting an autopsy report to determine an official cause of death.

The resort is owned and operated by the Colorado-based Vail Resorts.
