Missing Skier Found

In missing

Sad news today as the body of a missing skier was found on Mount Dana.

Searchers located and are in the process of retrieving the body of a skier, who’s been missing in Mono County for nearly two weeks.

Boris Avdeev, 31, of Ann Arbor, Mich., an experienced backcountry skier, has not been heard from since setting out on his solo backcountry ski trip on April 19.

His body was found on Thursday and members of an ice rescue team with a dozen members from Douglas County and El Dorado counties responded to help retrieve the body from steep, icy terrain located at the 10,670-foot level.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Mr. Avdeev’s family.
