Earlier this afternoon an avalanche occurred in bounds at Squaw Valley. The avalanche occurred off KT 22 lift near Olympic Lady. Five victims were caught, all were rescued. One transported to Tahoe Forest Hospital with serious lower body injury, one other rescued and transported to medical facility at base of mountain, treated and released. The remaining three were able to leave the scene unharmed. Squaw Valley shut down operations due to the increasing avalanche danger. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

With so much snow coming in so fast with high winds, it stands to reason. Also, the earlier snow that fell was very light and the snow later last night was a bit heavier.

Scary about the avalanche in KT 22. Glad those folks will be okay. Here's the story:

Also, a snowboarder was found deceased there this morning, but it doesn't appear to be part of that avalanche:
