"When we arrived we assessed an individual and determined him deceased on scene," said Calgary EMS spokesman Adam Loria.

French sports minister Laura Flessel expressed her "sadness" and said she will look carefully into the circumstances of the crash.

Poisson, a bulky racer with a broad smile nicknamed "Caillou" ("small stone"), was a popular figure on the World Cup circuit.

He secured his only World Cup podium in 2015 when he came third in the Santa Caterina downhill in Italy, and was fourth in the prestigious Kitzbuehel downhill in 2013. He also competed in the last Winter Olympics, and hoped to qualify for the Pyeongchang Games.

Poisson's death came 16 years after super-G world champion Regine Cavagnoud, a prominent French skier, died in Austria from brain injuries following a collision in training.

"There is no word for that," former French downhiller Luc Alphand told L'Equipe newspaper. "Eliminating risk entirely in downhill is impossible."

An official with Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, which operates Nakiska, said it is open only for private race training at this time of year for the high level athletes preparing for the World Cup season.

Matt Mosteller said a number of teams, including France, were using the facility.

"They take care of their own training, they set their own courses, they do everything themselves. They're high level athletes preparing for what they do best," Mosteller said.

"It's just horrible that this has happened and really our hearts are torn apart by it and our thoughts and prayers are with his family in France."
