Officials at a California ski resort say an avalanche that caught five people has injured 2 people, one of them seriously.

Dozens of rescuers rushed to the scene Friday afternoon at Squaw Valley Ski Resort east of Sacramento.

The resort says a man was hospitalized with a serious lower body injury, another person was treated and released and three people weren't hurt.

The resort has been closed.

The avalanche occurred a day after a snowboarder died at the resort. The man's body was found under feet of snow Friday, the day after a blizzard packing 150-mph winds hit the Sierra Nevada.
