A 68-year-old Loveland man is dead after crashing Sunday while skiing in Rocky Mountain National Park.

The man was skiing on a north-facing trail on Sundance Mountain between Trail Ridge Road and Old Fall River Road when he fell 400 to 500 feet.

“The man was skiing alone but bystanders witnessed the fall and tried to render aid and notified Rocky Mountain National Park,” the National Park said in a news release.

The man’s name has not been released.
