Three skiers die in an avalanche in Canada

QThree people died in an avalanche on Wednesday in the Canadian territory of British Columbia.

According to the Associated Press, citing local agencies, the three skiers were part of a group of ten people who were caught in an avalanche near Invermere, in the Panorama Mountain resort.

Authorities said everyone in the group had been accounted for and four survivors were injured and were expected to recover in the coming days.

The only Canadian was the guide, but the nationalities of the victims were not disclosed.

The Associated Press noted that this was the sixth deadliest avalanche on Canadian soil since November. Heavy snowfall, caused by unstable weather conditions, led to the death of 12 other people.

Given the unpredictable snow conditions in the country’s mountains, Canadian authorities have warned that practitioners of winter sports avoid the large mountains in the interior.
