Grand County coroner identifies 17-year-old Texas girl killed in Winter Park ski crash with tree

Grand County authorities have identified the 17-year-old Texas girl who died Wednesday after skiing into a tree on an intermediate trail at Winter Park Resort.

Alicyn Mitcham, from Colmesneil, Texas, was pronounced dead at Denver Health East Grand ER after efforts to revive her failed, according to county Coroner Brenda Bock.

Bock said an autopsy on Alicyn, who lived in a small town outside of Houston near the Texas-Louisiana border, will be completed Thursday. According to Bock, Alicyn was not wearing a helmet.

The ski area says the crash happened at about 12:30 p.m. on Forget-Me-Not, a run in the resort's Parsenn Bowl.

No other skiers or snowboarders were involved in the crash.

"Winter Park Resort extends its deepest condolences to the woman's family in the wake of this tragic accident," the release said.
