2 killed, 1 injured on Northern California ski slopes

Associated Press

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say two people were killed and a third was injured in three separate accidents on California mountain slopes.

The owner of China Peak Mountain Resort northeast of Fresno says a 30-year-old snowboarder was killed Sunday afternoon after falling head first in an open ski area. Tim Cohee said about 5 feet of snow fell in the Sierra National Forest over the weekend.

A spokesman for the Sierra-at-Tahoe resort said a skier was killed in an accident. A call to an El Dorado Sheriff’s spokesman seeking the circumstances of the accident was not immediately returned.

A spokesman for Kirkwood Mountain Resort said a skier was taken to a hospital after being injured in a small avalanche. Michael Dalzell said he didn’t know the extent of that person’s injury.
