Snowboarders Arrested In Tahoe

Sponsored by:

Five snowboarders have been arrested after entering an avalanche area and getting lost last night.

It´s the second time in two weeks that a group of snowboarders have deliberately entered a closed avalanche area at a Lake Tahoe ski resort.

Four men and a teen-age boy were arrested on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. They were charged about 30 minutes after a ground and air search began last night at Heavenly ski resort.

The snowboarders apparently became lost in the closed area and hiked about four miles. They went to a house west of the resort.

No injuries were reported.
