SALT LAKE CITY — A 54-year old man died after an incident at Snowbird ski resort on Friday, according to Snowbird officials.

Snowbird communications manager Sarah Sherman said that around 10:45 a.m., the resort's ski patrol received a report that a male skier was in need of medical assistance near the Little Cloud chairlift. Ski patrol responded and began administering medical assistance and called for additional help, Sherman said.

The man then was transferred into the care of Unified Fire Authority and paramedics, who began to administer life-saving measures. Unified Fire Authority spokesperson Matthew McFarland said that the man showed evidence of a traumatic event. Paramedics were unable to revive the man after he was transferred into their care, said McFarland.

An official cause of death couldn't be determined by medical personnel.

Further information, including the identity of the man, was not released.
