PARK CITY — A 20-year-old man from California was killed in a ski incident at Park City Mountain Resort on Tuesday, according to the resort.

Police have not released the man’s name, but TMZ identified the man as Charlie Noxon, son of “Orange Is the New Black” and “Weeds” creator Jenji Kohan.

Park City Mountain said in a statement Wednesday that ski patrol responded to a “serious incident” on an intermediate trail near Canyons Village. The man from Sherman Oaks was pronounced dead after receiving emergency care, the resort said.

A spokeswoman with the resort declined to elaborate on the incident.

Sheriff’s deputies received a report of a death at the resort Tuesday about 2:30 p.m., said Lt. Andrew Wright with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

He gave few details Wednesday, saying investigators were still trying to figure out exactly what happened.

”Just a truly tragic accident,” Wright said.

Deputies were withholding the skier’s name pending notification of kin.

TMZ reports that Noxon fell and was taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital. He was visiting Park City with his siblings and father, writer Christopher Noxon, according to TMZ.
