Skier killed in accident at Wisp

MCHENRY (AP) — The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office said a skier has been killed in an accident at the Wisp ski resort.

James Jung-Jin Park, 40, of Rockville lost control and ran into trees while skiing Saturday morning with two friends. Authorities said the Rockville man was pronounced dead at Garrett County Memorial Hospital.

The sheriff’s office said the accident occurred on a ski-run known as the Squirrel Cage.

The resort announced in December that it had emerged from bankruptcy protection under a new management firm.

The previous owners filed for bankruptcy protection after defaulting on loans to build a golf course community near the ski hill. That project was sold to another party during bankruptcy proceedings.
