Silver Mountain ski area will be closed Wednesday to give its employees a chance to recuperate in the aftermath of last week’s deadly avalanche.
The Kellogg ski resort announced the closure as an effort to help its workers after “they worked tirelessly through the challenges of last week.”
49 Degrees North will honor all Silver Mountain season passes for the day.
Three people died and five were rescued with minor injuries after an avalanche swept down Wardner Peak in an inbounds ski run called 16 to 1.
