CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN — The ski patrol at Washington’s Crystal Mountain Resort says a Seattle skier died when he apparently suffocated in a tree well.

The ski patrol says a skier told patrol members shortly before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday that her skiing partner was missing. KOMO-TV reports that the patrol says the man had last been seen about 90 minutes earlier. Ski patrol members spotted some ski equipment near the base of a tree and located the 35-year-old man. They dug him out and began CPR, but he died. He was not immediately identified.
