Tuesday Afternoon:  Yet another avalanche death in the Sea to Sky corridor

A 44-year-old Squamish man was sledding with a group of four when he triggered an avalanche doing a himark. The avalanche occurred around 3 o’clock about 20k south of Whistler on Powder Mountain . The slide covered about 1km of land and settled on Grizzly Lake.

“The group managed to dig the man out, but he was unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing and had no pulse. Members of the group performed CPR on the man until help arrived […] SAR performed CPR on the man for an hour or so […] they tried to give him an adrenaline shot to see what they can do to keep him going [then] The victim was airlifted to Whistler Medical Clinic”the Province

Out thoughts go out to his family and friends. 

In recent days there has been significant avalanche activity in the Whistler and Pemberton area. Be careful out there!
