Missing Tahoe skier found dead in avalanche

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. ” Searchers have found the body of a missing skier buried in an avalanche in the mountains above Lake Tahoe.

The El Dorado County sheriff’s office says Christopher Trethaway of South Lake Tahoe had apparently gone skiing in the Sierra Nevada backcountry near Emerald Bay on Sunday and failed to return.

Crews began the search late Sunday after authorities found his car by the Bayview Trailhead.



Lt. Les Lovell says search and rescue crews found the 39-year-old man’s body Monday morning.
