TRUCKEE, Calif. ( & KRNV) -- Two skiers have died, both killed in separate accidents at Lake Tahoe ski resorts over the weekend.

The first death happened at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. An 18-year old employee was skiing on his day off, was not wearing a helmet, and hit a tree, suffering a head injury.

The second death involved a 43-year-old skiier from the Bay Area who was skiing at Northstar. He also hit a tree, and was not wearing a helmet.

"Being safe requires that you have a helmet on," said an official from the Sheriff's Department. "If you're skiing in the backwoods, here in Sugar Bowl and other stuff, you have to ski with at least one or two people."

The Sheriff's Department also said if the skiers would have been wearing helmets, they would have had a better chance of surviving.

Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here
