Sun Valley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) A Hailey woman has died following a skiing accident at Sun Valley.
Melanie Kendall, 38, was found unresponsive near the Roundhouse Lane Ski Track on Baldy.
The incident happened Wednesday, just before 4 p.m.
Blaine County Coroner Russ Mikel told the Idaho Mountain Express that Kendall was skiing alone prior to being found by other skiers.
Mikel says although there were no witnesses, he received reports indicating she collided with a tree.
After life–saving efforts were administered, Kendall was pronounced dead at St. Luke's Wood River, about 40 minutes after being found.
The Idaho Mountain Express reports the autopsy should take at least eight weeks.
