The woman, 40, was pronounced dead at a hospital, Schelly Olson, a spokeswoman for the Grand County Sheriff's Office, told CNN. The 9-year-old daughter was taken to a children's hospital, and the 12-year-old was taken to a local hospital.

Accidents like this are rare. It is the first fatal ski lift accident since 2002, according to KMGH.

The Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board is investigating. The lift will reopen when it's deemed safe, the board told KCNC.
