HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. (AP) – A man killed in a ski accident in Colorado last weekend was an officer at New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force Base.

Air Force officials say 27-year-old First Lt. Arthur M. Glaz was the vehicle management flight commander with the 49th Logistics Readiness Squadron at Holloman.

He reportedly was skiing down an intermediate trail when he struck a tree Friday in Keystone, Colo.

According to the Summit County Coroner’s Office, Glaz was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

He served more than three years in the Air Force and had been stationed at Holloman since July 2012.

Glaz originally is from Palos Hills, Ill.

A memorial ceremony is scheduled Tuesday in the Holloman Chapel.

Glaz’s funeral is set for Feb. 16 in Chicago.
