KEYSTONE – A man died of a suspected heart attack while skiing Thursday at Keystone Resort.

County Coroner Joanne Richardson said late Thursday she was attempting to notify the family of the man before identifying him.

The 64-year-old, Bloomington, Ind., resident was skiing down the Diamondback trail on the back side of Dercum Mountain, she said.

According to a statement from Keystone Resort, the accident occurred about 3 p.m. and ski patrollers provided life support until a medical helicopter could evacuate the man. He was pronounced dead at Keystone Medical Center.

In another accident at Keystone Resort Thursday, a man lost control skiing and hit a tree. He was airlifted to Swedish Medical Center in Denver in critical condition.
