The five charges against Pitcher, 52, involve conducting avalanche training for Wolf Creek ski patrollers from five to 15 miles outside the ski-area boundaries.

Ski patrol members were transported by a commercial helicopter pilot to the training areas in which hand-held explosives were thrown to set off avalanches.





Sounds like an unfortunate accident.
