TELLURIDE, Colo. -- A South man died Saturday afternoon in a ski accident at Telluride Ski Resort, the San Miguel Sheriff's Office said.

George Nolan, 69, of Greenwood, S.C., crashed into multiple trees, the sheriff's office said.

Nolan was skiing with his daughter-in-law on the Coonskin ski run when he passed her with one ski missing, then slid head-first on his side, the sheriff's office said.

A Telluride ski patroller told deputies she was riding on a lift when she saw Nolan, who was wearing a helmet, sliding without skis and crashing into multiple trees.

Emergency crews performed CPR but they were unable to resuscitate him.

It's the second death at Telluride Ski Resort this month. A 49-year-old Colorado Springs man was killed after he lost control and fell earlier in March.
