25-Year-Old Dead After Ski Accident At Palisades Tahoe

By

A 25-year-old San Francisco man is dead after an accident at the Palisades Tahoe ski resort on Saturday. SFGATE reports the man was found unresponsive on the mountain, and later pronounced dead at Tahoe Forest Hospital in Nevada County. Tahoe Palisades said in a statement that the man was not wearing a helmet and likely fell and suffered head trauma:

“At 4:21pm, Ski Patrol responded to a guest report of an injured skier, and found an unresponsive 25-year-old man off the closed Sunnyside trail. Ski Patrol administered life-saving efforts, and the man was transported via ambulance to Tahoe Forest Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Our deepest sympathies go out to family and friends of the deceased.” 

KRNV reported that the man was found in a pond on the resort, and that he was skiing with a group of five other people, though none were witness to the accident. The man’s name is being withheld pending next of kin notification. The death marks the third death at the resort this year.
