BRECKENRIDGE - A 14-year-old girl died Friday after skiing into a tree at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
The girl was identified by the Summit County Coroner as Haley Rose Gans from Colorado Springs. The coroner says she was home schooled.
The resort says the incident happened at 11:48 a.m. on the blue intermediate trail Spruce. The resort's ski patrol responded immediately and worked with Flight for Life to put the girl on advanced life support while getting her to the ambulance.
According to the Summit County Coroner, Witnesses say she was skiing very fast and ran into a tree. Her death was related to a blunt force trauma to the chest.
"Breckenridge Ski Resort, Breckenridge Ski Patrol and the Vail Resorts family extend their deepest sympathy and support to the family and friends of the young woman," a release from the resort said.
The girl was pronounced dead at the Breckenridge Medical Center after being flown by Flight for Life to an ambulance which rushed her to the hospital.
