Does anyone know the details of what happened to Sam Beall who was killed at Vail Thursday?

All I can find is that there was "an incident on an intermediate trail".

My wife is a big fan of Blackberry Farm, and we are planning to go stay there in the near future. Condolences to the family, very sad.

Local Denver media reported it happened at Beaver Creek. Beaver Creek has not released what happened.

Condolences to the family also.

Coroner's report released.  Ruled an accident.

"The death of Blackberry Farm proprietor Sam Beall has been ruled an accident caused by blunt force trauma to the chest while skiing in Colorado, Eagle County Coroner Kara Bettis said Friday in an email.

 

Bettis told the Denver Post that Beall, 39, died Feb. 25 after running into a wooden pole between runs on an intermediate ski slope at Beaver Creek Resort in Avon, Colo., near Vail."
