Local Christian Helger, 29, of Millcreek, Utah, worked at the ski mountain where he died. A University of New Hampshire graduate is dead after he was ejected from a ski lift chair at Park City Mountain in Utah. Christian Helger, 29, of Millcreek, Utah, fell into a ravine Jan. 2 after a pine tree fell onto his ski lift's cable and caused his chair to vertically move up and down. Summit County Investigators believe the tree hit the cable behind where the man was seated. Helger was found unresponsive, authorities said.
