Fatal avalanche kills two

Third deadly avalanche in B.C. this week

Two French heli-skiers are dead after yet another fatal avalanche in British Columbia. RCMP say the slide occurred in the Wells Gray Provincial Park near MacAndrew Lake, and buried three skiers—killing two men, ages 65 and 19. On Friday, a man was killed in an avalanche while operating a snowmobile on Eagle Pass Mountain, and last weekend, an avalanche on Boulder Mountain killed two men and buried 31 others.
