Wow, I guess 4' of snow isn't necessarily a good thing. Tahoe Tribune reports a ski patrol buried at Alpine's Sherwood Bowl when a controlled explosion set off a larger than expected slide. He was found within 8 minutes and airlifted out.

At Squaw, a slide at KT22 took out three people. Fortunately nobody was seriously hurt. Crazy, all this shit happening inbounds! Though at Alpine, Sherwood was closed at the time.
