Skier’s death under investigation

GEORGETOWN – The death of a skier just beyond the boundaries of Loveland Ski Area remains under investigation two weeks after his body was discovered.

The Denver Post Sunday first reported the death of the 33-year-old skier. Details, including the man’s hometown or identity were not released by the ski area or Clear Creek County Coroner Don Allan. 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.
