Forest Service Clears Vail Resorts In Avalanche Death

DENVER (CBS4) – A mother says she is disappointed that the U.S. Forest Service won’t change procedures after her 13-year-old son died in an avalanche.

Taft Conlin was skiing with two friends when they were caught in an Avalanche in January. It happened in the Prima Cornice area.

The boys entered the ski area through an open gate despite signs at another gate saying the area was closed.

The Forest Service says Vail Mountain was following procedures at the time of the accident.
