An in-bounds avalanche claimed the life of one skier and badly injured another in January 2020 at Alpine Meadows Resort.
The survivor is now suing the resort for the incident. The plaintiff claims that Alpine Meadows did not properly prepare the runs after a big snowfall.
He believes the negligence led to his friend’s death, and his lasting injuries.
“Defendant’s mitigation measures not only did not mitigate the risks, but, instead, increased the risks and turned a dangerous area into a deadly one.”
The avalanche occurred in the area between Scott Chute and Promised Land near the Scott chair lift. It took rescuers over an hour to dig them out.
No information has been made available about how much the lawsuit is seeking in reparations.
