CSU student from Fort Collins killed in avalanche
A CSU-Fort Collins student was killed in an avalanche near Cameron Pass on Saturday when the dog he and his companion were skiing with apparently triggered the very large slide, officials say.
The man's identity has not yet been released publicly but Jackson County Coroner George Crocket confirmed the man was a Colorado State University student.
The man and his companion were skiing in the backcountry near the Nokhu Crags in an area known as the Paradise Bowl. The two men had finished their run, and their dog was running down the tracks when the slide let loose, said Scott Toepfer of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.
