Two people from a group of snowmobilers entered a wind loaded slope and triggered an avalanche. One person was able to ride out of the slide, the other was caught and buried. A second party witnessed the event and came to help. It was established that the buried person did not have a transceiver. Despite this, the buried person was located quickly, but had sustained injuries. The groups organized an evacuation and transported the injured person to the road where they were transferred to an ambulance. Unfortunately the injured rider passed away in hospital later in the day.
