According to a Vermont State Police Press Release, Jeffrey K. Chalk was a longtime Killington mechanic that was found unresponsive on Saturday after he fell approximately 13 feet from a catwalk to the cement floor below in the Skyeship Gondola terminal. Jeffrey was a 53-year-old man from Pittsford, NY that had worked for Killington as a mechanic for a long time. On Saturday, he was found unresponsive by a fellow Killington Ski Resort employee on the floor of Skyeship Gondola’s North Brook Terminal.
At about 4:00pm on Saturday, Medical Personnel responded to a call from Killington of an unresponsive man in the Skyeship terminal. Shortly after, Jeffrey was transported to the Rutland Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. At the time of the fall, it was reported that Chalk was working alone. The cause of his death is suspected to be serious head injuries that he sustained as a result of the fall, but an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
