The resort was closing at the time of the incident, and the lift had already stopped for the day when the 29-year-old from France and a 30-year-old German collided on a novice slope. Both were wearing a helmet.

Ski patrol was in the process of sweeping the mountain when the crash occurred, and were therefore on the scene almost immediately. Authorities continue to investigate the incident.
