Cbc.ca brings us this tragic story of a father and son killed by an avalanche in Lake Louise, Canada.
The father and son from Montreal killed in an avalanche in Lake Louise, Alberta, had not been heard from in seven days, say local RCMP.
They were reported missing on March 14 after failing to check out of the Chateau Lake Louise and RCMP then requested the help of Parks Canada Search and Rescue personnel to help look for the two Saturday afternoon. However, they had last been spoken to on March 9 when they rented their toboggan from the hotel.
RCMP say it’s not clear when the avalanche was triggered but the area where they were found is not well used.
