Skier dies at North Shore resort


A 59-year-old El Dorado County man died Thursday while skiing at Northstar-at-Tahoe.

James W. Harris of Cool was unconscious and unresponsive when rescue crews reached him about 12:10 p.m. on Lookout Mountain. CPR efforts and advanced life support measures were unable to revive Harris.

Harris was skiing with friends when he apparently lost control and fell onto rocks, according to Placer County sheriff’s deputies. He suffered massive head trauma.
