A snowboarder who allegedly went into a closed area near a California ski resort may face criminal prosecution.
The Sugar Bowl resort says the snow-boarder caused an avalanche.

Placer County investigators say the snow-boarder posted video online showing the incident.

In a news release, Sugar Bowl claimed the snowboarder was trespassing in an area that hasn’t been open to the public in five years…and that he put others at risk.
