DEER VALLEY — A skier who died Tuesday after crashing into a tree at Deer Valley Resort was identified Wednesday as a Florida man.
Michael Leone, 65, of West Palm Beach, was skiing on the Keno run, just above Nabob run on Bald Mountain, when he collided with a tree about 11:30 a.m., resort officials said.
Rescue efforts by members of the ski patrol and crews from a medical helicopter proved unsuccessful for Leone, who was wearing a helmet, according to resort officials.
