PARK CITY, Utah — A 20-year-old man from California was killed in a ski incident at Park City Mountain Resort on Tuesday, according to the resort.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday identified the man as Charles “Charlie” Noxon, 20, of Los Angeles. He is the son of “Orange is the New Black” and “Weeds” producer Jenji Kohan and writer Christopher Noxon.

Park City Mountain said in a statement Wednesday that ski patrol responded to a “serious incident” on an intermediate trail near Canyons Village. Charlie Noxon was pronounced dead after receiving emergency care, the resort said.

A spokeswoman with the resort declined to elaborate on the incident.

“Our hearts are shattered,” according to a statement from Noxon’s family. “… Charlie had a beautiful life of study and argument and travel and food and razzing and adventure and sweetness and most of all love. We cannot conceive of life without him.”

Sheriff’s deputies received a report of a death at the resort Tuesday about 2:30 p.m., said Lt. Andrew Wright with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

He gave few details Wednesday, saying investigators were still trying to figure out exactly what happened.

”Just a truly tragic accident,” Wright said.
