PARIS, January 13, 1:56 /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian skier died in south-eastern France on Sunday upon deviating from ski-course and crashing against the rocks, a source in Isere Department gendarmerie said.
The incident occurred at the Alpe d'Huez, the largest mountain skiing resort in the French Alps. The 49-year-old Russian skier was skiing together with his family down the so-called red slope (a ski-course of medium complexity) on Sunday morning.
"Owing to a cause unknown so far, he deviated from the skir-course and fell, crashing against the rocks, twenty metres away from the slope," the local gendarmerie source pointed out. Resort personnel immediately hurried to his aid. However, all efforts to save his life were of no avail.
According to health agencies, the ski-course was in a good condition, and the skier wore a crash helmet.
The gendarmerie started an investigation into the incident.
