SHOSHONE CO., Idaho — Silver Mountain Resort is scheduled to reopen Friday, a day after search crews recovered the body of a skier reported missing from Tuesday’s avalanche.

In a post to Facebook, the resort said they will delay opening until 9:15 a.m. on Friday.

They will also honor $12 lift tickets as planned, but the resort said all other previously planned Jackass Day festivities will be canceled.

Tuesday’s avalanche happened on Wardner Peak, which was closed to skiers at the time.

Search crews and volunteers found five skiers alive in the debris. The bodies of two other skiers were found on Tuesday. They were identified as 58-year-old Carl William Dick Humphreys of Liberty Lake and 46-year-old Scott Michael Parsons of Spokane Valley.

On Thursday, search crews recovered the body of a third skier who was reported missing on Wednesday. That skier has not yet been identified.
