SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a skier has died in an accident at Snowbasin Resort in Weber County.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/2iBGsAs ) reported that Weber County Sheriff’s Lt. Nate Hutchinson said the unidentified man apparently collided with a tree Saturday within the bounds of the resort.

A helicopter crew was not able to land due to heavy fog and inversion, so rescuers carried the man to a waiting ambulance below.

Hutchinson said the man later died from his injuries at a hospital. There were no known witnesses to the accident.
