The new snow this weekend tempted two skiers at Aspen Highlands to duck a rope and head into out of bounds territory. They were spotted by a ski patroller who followed the pair. An avalanche was triggered by the skiers and partially buried the ski patroller. The patroller extricated himself from the slide Sunday and wasn’t hurt. The skiers left, and resort officials weren’t able to find them. Those that duck ropes and ignore ski area rules put others in harm’s way.
