The man was identified as 51-year-old Richard Frazer, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
Officials said Frazer was in the final stage of a lone jump Saturday when a change in pressure cause his parachute to malfunction.
"It does not appear to be an equipment failure," said Mike Murphy of the Clark County coroner's office. "This atmospheric event changed the airflow under the canopy, which caused the parachute to lose its lift and caused him to fall."
