Ulliel, known for appearing in Chanel perfume ads as well as film and television roles, suffered a serious head injury in the crash, local broadcaster France Bleu said.

His family confirmed his death in a statement on Wednesday.

According to reports, the French actor was not wearing a helmet when he crashed into another skier at a crossing point on the slopes.

Ulliel, who shares a six-year-old son with model Gaelle Pietri, was airlifted to a hospital in Grenoble following the horror collision.

The other skier was not seriously injured and an investigation is now under way into the tragic accident, the Savoie prosecutor's office said.

A week ago today Gaelle shared a video on Instagram of their son skiing to celebrate his sixth birthday.

Mountain cops have reportedly been responding to multiple accidents in the region in recent days due to hard snow and ice on the slopes.
