An avalanche northeast of Prince George has killed a snowmobiler.
Prince George Search and Rescue says five snowmobilers were riding in the Torpy Mountain range yesterday when a member was caught in an avalance.
The other four were uninjured and notified RCMP.
The B.C. Coroner’s Service is investigating.
Backcountry users were warned all weekend about a heightened possibility of avalanches, especially in the coastal inland area.
New snow storms across B.C. this past week buried a weak layer of snow, creating a hazardous and now fatal situation.
