Champion, PA – Pennsylvania State Police are continuing their investigation into a collision at Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Saturday that left one skier dead.
Police indicate that Jeffrey Behr, 51, of Delmont, Penn., was skiing on Seven Springs’ intermediate Wagner trail above the resort’s Main Lodge shortly before 9 p.m. on Saturday night when he was struck by another skier. Behr sustained fatal injuries to his face and neck area.
Toxicology tests to determine whether or not either skier was under the influence remain pending.
According to his obituary, Behr was a project manager with the Kacin Companies. He leaves behind a wife and three children.
“Our entire mountain family is deeply saddened by the tragic accident,” said Seven Springs spokeswoman Katie Buchan. “While we continue to work to uncover the details as to how this occurred, our thoughts and prayers go out to this gentleman’s family, friends and loved ones during this unspeakably difficult time.”
Behr’s death is the third at Seven Springs since 2012.
