SUMMIT COUNTY — A skier who crashed into some rocks at Copper Mountain last month has died of traumatic brain injuries, according to Summit County coroner Joanne Richardson.
The skier, identified as 21-year-old Joe Lubar, was a student at the University of Denver. He was from Milwaukee Wisconsin.
According to the coroner, Lubar apparently lost control while skiing on Schaefer’s Ski Run (a double black diamond) and tumbled through some rocks at Copper Mountain Ski Area on January 25.
He suffered traumatic brain injuries and was first taken to St. Anthony’s Summit Medical Center and then transferred to St. Anthony’s Central Hospital in Denver where he succumbed to his brain injuries early Friday morning.
