Another avalanche hit Palisades Tahoe Thursday, just a day after a 66-year-old man was killed and three others were injured in a major slide.
Palisades spokesperson Patrick Lacey said the avalanche was reported at 12:30 p.m. near Wolverine Bowl on the Alpine side of the Lake Tahoe-area ski resort. No guests or employees were injured or caught in the slide, Lacey said.
Ski patrol had conducted avalanche hazard mitigation before opening the area. As a result, the Summit lift and terrain were immediately closed. The lift reopened after ski patrol conducted a search with beacons, probes and dogs to determine that no one was impacted.
On Wednesday, 66-year-old Kenneth Kidd died after being buried in a major avalanche below the KT-22 lift on the Palisades side of the mountain. A second person was buried in the snow, and two others were caught up in the slide.
