Wife of skier killed in Winter Park avalanche files suit against Intrawest

— The wife of a skier killed in a January avalanche inside the Winter Park ski area has filed a wrongful death suit targeting the Denver-owned ski area's operator, Intrawest.

"It is up to the people who are running the ski area to either rope off the area or make sure it's safe," said attorney Michael Burg, whose Burg Simpson firm is representing Christopher Norris' widow, Salyndra Fleury. "A family goes up skiing and they have no idea there is a potential to be killed by an avalanche. That's ridiculous. This is gross negligence."

Intrawest declined to comment citing company policy to not talk about pending litigation.
