- A party of four were grouped up while moving through terrain below a cliff band. One rider started to move away from the group and appears to have triggered (possibly remotely) an avalanche that came down on the group. One person was fully buried, two were partly buried. The two partly buried victims were able to self-extricate rapidly. The fully buried victim was buried approximately 2 m below the surface together with his sled. The buried victim was located by his companions and uncovered within approximately 10 minutes. Rescue teams were alerted and CPR was performed by the companion group immediately, but unfortunately the victim did not recover.
