State Police are investigating the death of a 20-year-old who was killed Monday after striking several trees after leaving the trail at  Hunter Mountain Ski Resort in Hunter, N.Y., off Route 9W.

It marks the second accidental death at Hunter Mountain in less than a month's time.

Zachary T. Thompson of Cream Ridge, New Jersey, was skiing on the Racers Edge trail, a double black diamond (expert) trail on Hunter's Mountain when he lost control and slid before leaving the trail and striking several trees Monday, state police said.

Thompson was extricated by the ski patrol and then treated by Greene County Paramedics and Hunter area ambulance personnel before being pronounced deceased.

State Police are currently treating the matter as an accidental fall and do not suspect any foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for a later date.

Warwick resident Edwin Wood, 58, died after losing control and hitting several trees on the resort's Annapurna Trail, also a double black-diamond trail, on Feb. 8. For more on that story, click here.
