Copper Mountain officials say Tristan Bartlett, of Houston, TX, was skiing without a helmet on the beginner trail, Vein Glory, when he struck a tree. 

Ski patrol provided emergency first aid on the mountain and then transported him to Saint Anthony's Medical Copper Mountain Medical Clinic where he was pronounced dead.

Vein Glory is the same trail where a 13-year-old girl was injured in a ski accident Dec. 23.
