1 dead, 3 injured following avalanche at California ski resort as storm moves in, officials say

Palisades Tahoe had opened for the first time this season Wednesday

RENO, Nev. — An avalanche roared through a section of expert trails at a California ski resort near Lake Tahoe on Wednesday, sweeping up four people and killing one, as a major storm with snow and gusty winds moved into the region, authorities said.

The avalanche prompted Palisades Tahoe to close 30 minutes after it opened, and search crews combed the area to see if anyone was injured or trapped.

Sgt. David Smith, a spokesperson for the Placer County sheriff, said hours later that one person, a male, died. One person suffered a lower leg injury and two others were treated for unspecified injuries and released, officials said.
