On Sunday morning a man was pronounced dead at the scene of a 13,400 ft. elevation rescue at Quandary Peak.

The Summit County Rescue Group responded at about 11:20 on Sunday morning using a Flight For Life helicopter to reach the man. Though life saving techniques were used, they were unable to save the man's life.

The man was skiing with a second person, who was also taken off the mountain and flown to the rescue operation's command post.

Local authorities have not yet released the man's identity.
