Lutsen Mountains says a skier died at its resort Wednesday. 

According to Director of Sales and Marketing Jim Vick, the adult male who was skiing by himself was found unresponsive on the slope just after 12:30 p.m. The Cook County Sheriff said he was found bleeding from the face on Moose Mountain, just below the Moose Mountain Chalet. 

Lutsen Ski Patrol responded and began life-saving measures along with bystanders. He was taken to the ski patrol building, but was pronounced dead at 1:15 p.m. 

Cook County identified him as 70-year-old David Skog, of St. Paul. His cause of death is unknown, but Vick did say there was no indication of a collision in the incident, however.
