Avalanche at Tahoe is subject of Saturday book signing, slideshow

Tahoe Daily Tribune

Jennifer Woodlief, author of the new book, “A Wall of White” will present a book signing and slideshow at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 11 at the El Dorado County Library South Lake Tahoe Branch Library Conference Room, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.

In 1982 an avalanche at a ski resort near Lake Tahoe took the lives of seven people. In the middle of the devastation, one woman was trapped under the snow and a team of ski patrolmen worked for five days to free her.

Jennifer Woodlief tells the story in a vivid and compelling style in her new book “A Wall of White.”

Larry Heywood, a ski patrolman at the time of the rescue, will also share his personal collection of slides depicting the aftermath of the avalanche.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
