SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Search teams scoured snow-covered slopes on Sunday for two missing skiers who were last seen at a Lake Tahoe resort during a storm that dumped more than 2 feet of snow.
A new round of rain and snow arrived Sunday in Southern California, where days of heavy rain and snow last week led to avalanche and traffic deaths, minor floods and landslides.
The skiers, Patrick Frost, 35, and Christopher Gerwig, 32, both of San Francisco, were reported missing Saturday night at the Alpine Meadows resort just north of Lake Tahoe, said Placer County sheriff's Sgt. Allan Carter.
Frost and Gerwig, described as expert skiers, had last been seen Saturday morning at a resort bar listening to advice about different outlying areas to ski. During the night, the area had temperatures in the 20s, high wind and heavy snow.
