I was actually on my way to 9990 that day, and am now thankful my wife was running late. While skiing to the lift we were passed by snowmobiles driven by ski patrol carrying dogs and a lot of poles. I immediately thought, "This isn't good." Anyhow, the jury didn't take long to deliberate finding the resort took "reasonable care" to prevent the in-bounds avalanche. Judging by the amount of blasting there after powder day, the resort probably takes more than "reasonable care," which is no consolation to the family of the dead man.
