Rescue crews found the male skier and began performing CPR on him around 11 a.m.

Boulder County sheriff’s Cmdr. Nick Goldberger said crews tried to call in a medical helicopter, but it was grounded due to the high winds. An ambulance responded, but the skier — who was believed to be 23 years old — was pronounced dead at the ski area.
