TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) – A 69-year-old man from South Carolina died Saturday after he crashed into trees while skiing in Telluride, the second skiing fatality in the resort town in 10 days, the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office says.

The sheriff’s office says that George A. Nolan of Greenwood, South Carolina, was skiing with his daughter-in-law about 3 p.m. when he lost his skis and slid head-first on his side. A member of the Telluride Ski Patrol told investigators that she saw the man sliding into trees.

The sheriff’s office says rescuers at the scene were not able to resuscitate the man.

On March 9, a man from of Colorado Springs died after losing control on steep terrain and tumbling into a steep wooded area in Telluride, the Denver Post reported.
