A 55 year-old Missouri man died Saturday after skiing into a tree on an intermediate trail at Beaver Creek Resort.

The Eagle County coroner identified the man as Jon Pyzyk of Saint Louis. Resort officials say he was not wearing a helmet.

Pyzyk was taken to the Vail Valley Medical Center where he was
pronounced dead.

At least 8 people have now died this season in accidents at
Colorado ski resorts.
