A Texas woman died Sunday morning after she crashed into a tree while skiing at Eldora Mountain Ski Resort, officials said.

Kelly Anz, 58, reportedly fell while skiing down Muleshoe, a black diamond run, and continued to slide down the mountain until she struck a tree, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said. 

The woman’s friends and family immediately called 911 and performed CPR until paramedics arrived and took over efforts to resuscitate her, the sheriff’s office said. But the woman was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Investigators don’t suspect any wrongdoing, but her death is being investigated by the sheriff’s office and county coroner’s office, which will determine the cause and manner of the woman’s death. 

UPDATE: This story was updated 9:20 a.m. on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 with the identification of Kelly Anz provided by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office.
