Thompsonville, Mich. — A 58-year-old man has died while skiing at Crystal Mountain in northern Michigan.

Crystal Mountain, a resort in Benzie County, says the Traverse City man was racing Friday when he lost control and slammed into a tower that makes snow. He was wearing a helmet.

The man’s name wasn’t immediately released, but Crystal says he was a regular skier.

The crash occurred on the Cheers downhill trail.
