Thursday March 3, 2011, CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, Washington
A search resumed Thursday morning for a skier missing at the Crystal Mountain ski resort, and the skier's brother said he's still hopeful that he will be found alive.
Paul Melby, 40, disappeared Tuesday afternoon in the High Campbell area of the mountain, an expert terrain ski area within the ski resort's boundaries.
"My brother is strong. ... He's dealt with adverse conditions," said Paul's brother, Matt Melby. "If anyone can survive these conditions, it would be him."
