GRANBY, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a Texas woman who fell to her death from a chairlift at a small Colorado ski resort.

Granby police identified the woman Friday as 40-year-old Kelly Huber, of San Antonio. She and her two young daughters fell about 20 feet from a lift at Ski Granby Ranch on Thursday.

The 12-year-old was treated and released from the local hospital, but her 9-year-old sister was airlifted to Children's Hospital Colorado in suburban Denver. Her condition wasn't released.

The last fatal fall from a lift in Colorado happened in 2002 when the manager of Winter Park Ski Resort suffered seizure-like symptoms.
