RCMP Cpl. James Grady said everyone in the group has been accounted for, and four are injured but expected to recover. He said all the skiers, except the guide, were from outside Canada, but did not release them to their hometowns.
This is the sixth fatal avalanche in British Columbia since the season began in November. Twelve people have died in British Columbia avalanches this season as unstable snow conditions in much of the province create the potential for large slides.
Avalanche Canada is warning backcountry users about unstable conditions in most Canadian provinces, saying the snowpack in the interior is incredibly complex and difficult.
