LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON — A 55-year-old man was killed while skiing at Snowbird on Sunday.

The man, whose name was not immediately released pending notification of family, was skiing very fast down Chip's Face, a black diamond run, when he lost control, said Unified police detective Ken Hansen.

Snowbird spokesman Brian Brown said the man hit a tree at the bottom of the run. The skier was killed instantly, Hansen said.

"Snowbird extends their thoughts and prayers to the skier’s family," Brown said.
