>> Trace: CONTINUING COVERAGE OF
BREAKING NEWS.
A SHERIFF IN CALIFORNIA SAYS AT
LEAST ONE PERSON HAS DIED.
ANOTHER SERIOUSLY INJURED AFTER
AN AVALANCHE AT A SKI RESORT IN
LAKE TAHOE.
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ALPINE
MEADOWS.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW ALPINE
MEADOWS, IT'S ON THE CALIFORNIA
SIDE OF LAKE TAHOE.
IT'S NEAR SQUALL VALLEY.
IN FACT, THEY'RE SISTER RESORTS
UP IN THE TAHOE AREA.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST 24
TO 28 HOURS, THEY GOT ABOUT 26,
28 INCHES OF SNOW.
IT'S NOT A HUGE AMOUNT OF SNOW
IN THIS AREA.
THIS AREA IS KNOWN FOR GETTING
FIVE, SIX, TEN FEET AT A TIME IN
THESE STORMS.
I KNOW BECAUSE I GREW UP HERE.
THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT STORM BUT
NOT A MAJOR STORM.
WHAT THEY DO AS A RULE, THEY GO
UP IN THE MORNING, THE SKI
PATROL, THEY GO TO THE TOP AREAS
AND WILL EITHER BLAST, SET OFF
THESE SMALL EXPLOSIVES TO SHAKE
THE SNOW LOOSE TO MAKE SURE IT
DOESN'T COME DOWN.
THAT IS STANDARD OPERATING
PROCEDURE.
APPARENTLY THIS MORNING SOME
AREA WAS NOT CHECKED.
THIS HAPPENED, ACCORDING TO THE
SHERIFF, INSIDE THE SKI RESORT
ITSELF.
IT HAPPENED NEAR THE SUBWAY SKI
LINE AND WE'RE BEING TOLD BY
PRODUCERS THE SUBWAY SKI LINE
APPEARS TO BE A BLUE, MAYBE EVEN
LESS.
SO A BEGINNING-TYPE RUN.
THE EARLIER INFORMATION WAS THAT
THE SHERIFF SAID THERE WERE
PEOPLE UNACCOUNTED FOR.
NOW HE'S BACKING UP ON THAT
SAYING THIS WAS A WITNESSED
EVENT, MEANING THERE WERE PEOPLE
THERE THAT WERE SKIING THAT WERE
SNOWBOARDING WHEN THE AVALANCHE
HAPPENED.
SO THEY HAVE AN IDEA OF EXACTLY
WHO WAS IN PLACE AND WHO WASN'T.
THEY'RE SAYING THAT ONE PERSON
HAS BEEN PULLED OUT WHO WAS
INJURED IN THIS THING.
AS WE TOLD YOU, THERE'S ONE
FATALITY AND THEY DON'T BELIEVE
ANYBODY ELSE IS UNACCOUNTED FOR
AT THIS TIME.
BUT BECAUSE THERE'S NO CLARITY
ON THAT, YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT
THEY DO IS THEY BRING IN DOGS,
THEY BRING IN SEARCH TEAMS, THEY
BRING IN RESCUE TEAMS TO GO IN
AND GO DOWN AND START CHECKING
THE SNOW FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
WHEN THEY SAY UNACCOUNTED FOR,
IT'S REALLY HARD IN AN AREA LIKE
THIS, ESPECIALLY ON A FRIDAY
AFTERNOON IN SQUALL ALPINE
VALLEY, BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW
WHERE PEOPLE ARE.
THEY COULD BE ON A LIFT OR
ANYWHERE.
SO UNACCOUNTED FOR, THEY DON'T
KNOW WHERE THEY ARE AT THAT
POINT IN TIME AND THEY WANT
THEIR FRIENDS AND THE PEOPLE
THEY'RE SKIING WITH TO GET AHOLD
OF THEM.
SO THEY'LL GO THROUGH THE
STANDARD PROCEDURE OF GOING IN,
BRINGING IN DOGS AND MAKING SURE
THERE'S NO OTHER PEOPLE THAT GOT
CAUGHT IN THE AVALANCHE.
AVALANCHES ARE COMMON IN THESE
AREAS.
AVALANCHES THAT ARE DEADLY ARE
UNCOMMON BECAUSE THEY GO THROUGH
A LITANY OF STANDARD OPERATING
PROCEDURES.
THIS, BY THE WAY, IS A LIVE LOOK
AT THE SQUALL ALPINE VALLEY.
THIS IS ONE OF THEIR CAMS UP
THERE IN THE MOUNTAIN.
YOU CAN SEE THE MOUNTAIN IS
FULLY OPEN.
THERE'S 13 LIFTS AT ALPINE
MEADOWS.
THIS WAS, AGAIN, IN A LIFT THAT
WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A BEGINNER.
NO MORE THAN AN INTERMEDIATE
LIFT, WHICH MEANS IT WASN'T ON
THE HIGHEST POINT OF THE
MOUNTAIN, WHICH MAKES IT MORE
UNUSUAL THAT THERE WOULD BE AN
AVALANCHE ON THIS TYPE OF
TERRAIN.
WE'RE STILL WAITING TO FIND OUT
MORE FROM THE SHERIFF AGAINST
THE VICTIMS UP THERE.
THEY'RE ON THE MOUNTAIN.
YOU HAVE SEARCH PATROL AND SKI
PATROL TEAMS ON THE MOUNTAIN
TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT
HAPPENED.
FOR THOSE THAT HAVE FAMILY AND
FRIENDS UP IN SQUAW, ALPINE
VALLEY THIS WEEKEND, THERE'S
BEEN A FATALITY UP THERE.
ONE PERSON IS INJURED AND RIGHT
NOW THE SHERIFF DOES NOT BELIEVE
THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE
UNACCOUNTED FOR.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO COVER THIS
TO BRING YOU BREAKING NEWS.
AVALANCHES ARE RARE.
AVALANCHES THAT KILL PEOPLE IN
