Photos: Skier killed after double avalanche near Keystone

For the third consecutive day, we have sad news to report about the death of a skier in the Colorado high country -- and the second in the vicinity of the Keystone ski area. But while the previous tragedy, involving a 46-year-old man who died after smashing into a tree over the weekend, will go down as an official ski-resort death (like that of publicity-shy St. Louis oil executive Gary R. Parker, who passed away after a crash at Beaver Creek), the latest fatality won't, since it took place following twin avalanches beyond Keystone's boundaries. Details and photos below.
