A skier who was seriously injured in a crash while competing in the the Nor-Am Cup in Lake Louise on Tuesday has died.

Max Burkhart was racing in a Nor-Am Cup downhill race at the resort on Tuesday, when he crashed into safety netting. STARS air ambulance was called to the scene while first aid was provided by on scene by emergency crews to stabilize him.

Max Burkhart was a member of Skiclub Partenkirchen in Germany and officials from the club confirmed that he was badly injured during the NorAm competition.

Banff EMS and ski patrol worked for almost 30 minutes to stabilize the youth before being airlifted to Foothills hospital in Calgary in serious, life-threatening condition.

RCMP say Burkhart succumbed to his injuries Wednesday in hospital.

"Alpine Canada and Alberta Alpine are devastated about this tragic loss of life and sends its deepest condolences to his family and teammates", Alpine Canada said in a news release.

The RCMP is assisting the office of the Medical Examiner in investigating the death and no criminal charges are expected.

Burkhart's death comes just weeks after French downhill skier David Poisson was killed during a training run in nearby Nakiska, dying November 13 after colliding with a tree.

"Our thoughts are with Max's family, friends, teammates, and coaches at this most hard time".
