Officials say a 21-year-old man died after a fall at a ski resort in eastern Pennsylvania, the third death at a ski resort in the area this year.

Blue Mountain spokeswoman Tricia Matsko says the skier fell after going over a snow jump on a beginner's trail around 6 p.m. Sunday.

The man, whose name hasn't been released, was pronounced dead at Palmerton Hospital. An autopsy is planned. Matsko says the man wasn't wearing a helmet.

A week earlier, 80-year-old Rudolf Huber died of complications from injuries sustained in a fall while skiing at Camelback Resort in Tannersville.

Seventeen-year-old Connor Golembiewski, of Flemington, New Jersey, died after falling off a chairlift at Blue Mountain on New Year's Day.
