Sierra Nevada ski patrol team member dies following avalanche

TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) — A member of a Sierra Nevada ski resort's patrol team who was injured after being caught in an avalanche has died. Alpine Meadows said yesterday that 53-year-old Bill Foster died at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nev., where he was taken after the avalanche a day earlier on the resort near Lake Tahoe. Foster was buried in a slide that had been intentionally set with an explosive device by a senior member of the ski patrol team. The team was doing avalanche control.
