ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- The man killed in an avalanche near Marble had skied the area earlier in the day and week without any problems.
Thirty-seven-year-old James Lindenblatt of Frisco died in the Jan. 13 slide.
A report by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center issued Sunday said that he and three other skiers decided to ride on Marble Peak Ridge after making several exploratory trips there.
The Aspen Daily News (http://bit.ly/XRzPZS) reported that the other skiers were able to find and dig him out of nearly 4 feet of snow in about five to 10 minutes. He had no pulse and wasn't breathing when they pulled him out.
Lindenblatt was the second person to die in an avalanche in Colorado this season.
