CHEHALIS – A 31-year-old man is dead after he reportedly skied outside the boundaries at the White Pass Ski Resort and encountered avalanche-type activity.

The ski patrol requested a deputy just after 6 p.m. yesterday and reported they had removed the deceased individual and were enroute with him to the ski lodge, which would take about an hour, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Dusty Breen said the man lives in the Randle area, but his name is not being released.

Breen said the incident is under investigation.
