A skier was killing in a skiing accident at Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area on Sunday.
The Shoshone County Sheriff's Office was notified of an overdue person who had been skiing at the resort earlier that day.
Sheriff's Officer personnel along with family members and friends of the missing skier arrived to Lookout a short time later to join ski resort personnel in their search of the ski area.
The skier's body was found shortly after 12:30 a.m. by Sheriff Mitch Alexander who was on skis checking some of the marked ski runs. The skier had reportedly stuck a tree a short distance into the timber off the Rainbow Ridge run on the South side of the ski area.
The skier, a sixty-one year old woman, was said to be an accomplished skier. She was wearing a helmet at the time. It is believed she lost control, and did not leave the ski run intentionally.
The name of the victim is being withheld until all immediate family members have been notified.
