BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - A 26-year-old skier died after hitting the snow on an expert run at Breckenridge Ski Resort on Friday.

The Summit Daily News (https://bit.ly/2kCpToO ) reported Monday that coroner Regan Wood that Ricardo Cohen of Mexico City suffered severe head trauma even though he was wearing a helmet at the time.

The accidental death is the fourth ski-related death in the state this year and the third at Breckenridge. Nine people died while skiing or snowboarding in the state last season.

Breckenridge’s vice president, John Buhler, issued a statement saying Breckenridge and parent company Vail Resorts extended their deepest sympathy and support to Cohen’s family and friends.
