Loveland Ski Area employee dies in workplace accident
DENVER — Authorities are investigating the death of a man who was caught in a snow-level lift he was working on at Loveland Ski Area.
KUSA-TV reported Friday that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the cause of Thursday’s accident.
The identity of the 40-year-old man hasn’t been released.
OSHA area director Herb Gibson says the “magic carpet” lift — essentially a conveyor belt that ferries skiers and snowboarders uphill — was not in use when the accident occurred.
An autopsy was scheduled for Saturday.
