Another avalanche fatality occurred today in British Columbia’s interior mountains.  A group of ten skiers accompanied by two guides were on a cat skiing trip organized by Selkirk Wilderness Skiing. According to a statement released by Selkirk:

“the skiers were to descend the high mountain run one at a time. The second skier down triggered the avalanche […] The lead guide quickly located the skier, who was wearing an avalanche transceiver. He was dug out from the snow, but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful” Globe and Mail

None of the other skiers were hit by the avalanche.  This marks the fifth avalanche related death to occur in B.C. this season. (Taken from The Globe and Mail)

The victim’s identity is not being released at this time but our thoughts go out the his family and friends.
