Authorities say a San Francisco man was killed in a skiing accident at Homewood Mountain Resort near Lake Tahoe.
According to the Placer County sheriff's office, 37-year-old Tyler A. Palmer was found upside down in a snow bank under a tree Sunday afternoon.
A passing ski patrolman helped dig him out and started CPR until paramedics arrived, but those efforts were unsuccessful.
Palmer was declared dead at the scene about 45 minutes later. Authorities say Palmer was skiing in bounds on an expert run. His death is being called accidental.
