GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Garfield County Coroner’s Office released the cause of death for a 48-year-old man who died while skiing at Sunlight Mountain Resort on Feb. 23.

The Coroner says that Job Henning, a resident of Bethesda, MD, was killed by blunt force injuries of the head, and his death has been ruled an accident.

Henning was found by other skiers at the base of a tree, who then initiated CPR until Sunlight Ski Patrol arrived.
