Man Hits Tree, Dies at Park City Mountain Resort

The man who died at Park City Mountain Resort Saturday has been identified as 48-year-old Hansi Brenninger.   The Aspen Times says Brenninger was a full-time ski instructor at Aspen Mountain.  According to a news release from Park City police, he was on an advanced slope skiing with family when he hit a tree shortly before ten in the morning.   He passed away from his injuries before he was taken to the hospital.  Brenninger is also listed as a real estate agent for Joshua & Co. in Aspen.  According to his biography on the company website, he was born and educated in Australia and taught skiing around the world before settling in Aspen.  According to the Aspen Times, Brenninger is survived by his wife, daughter and son. 

Renai Bodley Miller became General Manager of KPCW in June, 2017. Previously, she was a reporter at KPCW. Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business. She was a news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13. In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director. Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day. She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long. Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter, and less than two years later she was promoted to General Manager when Larry Warren retired.
