FRISCO, Colo. — Authorities have identified a backcountry skier who died on Quandary Peak in Summit County.

The Summit Daily News reports 22-year-old Peter Wing, of Denver, was skiing with a companion when he fell Sunday morning at about 13,400 feet elevation.

Summit County Coroner Regan Wood said Wing died of blunt-force injuries.

The Summit County Rescue Group used a helicopter to reach the skier, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is the second death on Quandary Peak in the past six months. A 67-year-old man died after he suffered a heart attack on the Quandary Peak Trail while hiking in late July.
