Story update:

In response to Truckee Sun’s original story on the GoFundMe account for Boline,  Squaw Valley posted a tweet starting “Our team member was working at the time of the avalanche, so his medical expenses are covered under the worker’s comp insurance. We wish him a speedy recovery!”

Truckee Sun’s Wyatt Haupt Jr. will be providing a follow up to this story. Look for it later this week on http://www.truckeesun.com.

Initial story:

The family of a victim in an avalanche at Squaw Valley on Friday afternoon, March 2, has established a GoFundMe account in order to help pay for costs associated with the injuries he suffered in the incident.

Marty Boline, of Truckee, suffered fractures to his legs when he was caught up in the avalanche.

Boline, who is an employee at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, had surgery on his right leg on Friday evening, March 2, in order to place a rod in his femur, said Karen Boline Lanthier, who is his sister.

He also underwent a second surgery to repair fractures in his left leg.

She said that her brother was released from the hospital on Thursday, March 8. He is expected to be in a wheelchair for six to eight weeks.

“They expect a full recovery,” Lanthier said.
