BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — A Virginia man has died following a skiing accident at the Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Forty-five-year-old Robert Redmond of Reston died Wednesday at St. Anthony Hospital outside Denver. Summit County coroner Timothy Keeling said Redmond was injured after hitting a tree while skiing on the Columbia trail on Sunday. He was wearing a helmet.
