Jamie Pierre, Pro skier dies in avalanche at Snowbird in Utah. He was 38.

Professional skier Jamie Pierre was killed Sunday afternoon by an avalanche he triggered while he and a friend were snowboarding at Utah's Snowbird Ski Resort. The resort had not yet opened for the season and conditions throughout the area were hazardous in the aftermath of a major storm.

The incident is under investigation but the Utah Avalanche Center reported on its website that avalanche-control measures had not been taken because the resort was closed.
