The storm has triggered another avalanche at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort early Saturday morning while the mountain’s ski patrol performed avalanche hazard mitigation work.
Three individuals were partially buried in the avalanche but were able to free themselves. Lift operations at Mammoth halted for the remainder of the day to focus full efforts on the site.
No missing persons have been confirmed but the mountain continues to be closed while a manual probe search is underway.
If members of the public are aware of missing friends or family, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area encourages them to call 760-934-0611.
