One Person Dead After Avalanche in British Columbia

One person has died following an avalanche in British Columbia.

A spokesman from the RCMP said that searchers found a victim in an area deemed a high risk for an avalanche.

Two men were snowmobiling together when the avalanche occurred in the backcountry near Merritt, about 85 km south of Kamloops.

The avalanche occurred between Prospect Creek and Cabin Lake.

Avalanche Canada says that travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended. A touchy weak layer in the north of the region requires particular caution.

There was heavy snow once again on Sunday.
