Authorities identify skier who died at Lutsen Mountains ski resort

According to Hubbard affiliate station WDIO-TV in Duluth, a skier who died at Lutsen Mountains Ski Resort Wednesday afternoon has been identified as 70-year old David Michael Skog of St. Paul. 

The Cook County Sheriff's Office said they received a 911 call around 12:30 p.m. for a skier found unresponsive and bleeding from the face just below the Moose Mountain chalet.  

The sheriff's office reported the Lutsen Mountain ski patrol arrived and began life-saving measures until 1:15 p.m. when the male was pronounced dead by Cook County Ambulance personnel.

Jim Vick, Lutsen's marketing director, confirmed to WDIO-TV the man was skiing by himself.  

This is the first death of the year for the ski resort but isn't the first to happen in Lutsen's history, Vick said.

An autopsy will be performed by the Midwest Medical Examiner's office.
