Death of skier outside Loveland Ski Area still under investigation 2 weeks later

GEORGETOWN, Colo. - The death of a skier whose body was discovered just beyond the boundaries of the Loveland Ski Area remains under investigation two weeks later.

The skier’s death was not reported until Sunday. Details, including the 33-year-old man's hometown or identity were not released by the ski area or Clear Creek County Coroner Don Allan, according to the Denver Post. Allan told The Associated Press that the death remains under investigation.

Loveland spokesman John Sellers says the ski patrol was notified of the missing skier March 17 and patrollers found the man just outside the ski area's boundaries near an expert run called The Face.

Sellers says Loveland does not issue news releases when there's a death at or near the ski area along the Continental Divide near Interstate 70.

The ski area released a statement Saturday saying that the man was found outside the boundary rope and was not wearing a helmet, according to the newspaper.

"Ongoing resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency crews," reads the statement, according to the newspaper. The statement also said the accident  "is currently under investigation."
