SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a 54-year-old man died while skiing at Snowbird east of Salt Lake City.

Unified Police Detective Ken Hanson said the man was found face down in the snow at about 10 a.m. Wednesday inside the boundaries at Snowbird resort. Hanson says investigators don’t know yet if he died from a skiing accident or a medical incident.

He says the Salt Lake City man doesn’t appear to have hit anything. Hanson says he was an avid skier who was familiar with the resort’s terrain.

Police aren’t disclosing his name yet.

Snowbird is the last resort still open this ski season in Utah.
