This article says the slide was likely caused by a skier, but not
necessarily by the victim:

"It took the men about 45 to 50 minutes to get out of the trees and onto
the main run. They both said they regret not speaking to ski patrollers
about the conditions Thursday but had to hustle to their car because
they were late for work."

I think that if things were that bad, I would tell someone. But maybe
thats just me.
