One person is dead after an Avalanche on Crowfoot Mountain just northeast of Chase.
John Schutt with Shuswap Search and Rescue says the victim wasn’t sledding alone when they were buried, though it’s not clear how large of a group they were with.
“There was more than one person riding together, and unfortunately this person has succumbed to an avalanche.”
Schutt says avalanche technicians have recovered the victim’s body and are now waiting for the coroner.
It has been a deadly season for avalanches in B.C. this year.
Schutt says his team was also deployed last week to recover a body from a deadly avalanche near Owl’s Head Mountain in Sicamous.
