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.
