Alpine Meadows Ski Patroller Dies

The Tahoe community has been blessed with a lot of snow over this holiday season. Unfortunately, this has been accompanied with serious avalanche hazard which has resulted in some near misses, minor injuries, the fatality of a snowboarder at Donner Ski Ranch, and now--the fatality of a 28 year veteran of the  Meadows Ski Patrol.

Bill Foster, 53, died yesterday in a California hospital after being involved in an avalanche during mitigation work at Alpine Meadows on Monday. Foster was doing routine avalanche hazard mitigation work when the slide broke higher and wider than he or his team expected.

My deepest condolences to the Alpine Meadows Ski Patrol.
