Default Husband Saved, Wife Dead near Kicking Horse

Que. man survives, wife dies after 9 days on B.C. mountain

Looks like they got lost... I really hope they were not trying to seek fresh tracks due to the lack of snow.

Sounds like the RCMP fucked up big time on that one.

Yep. If there's an SOS, I would think you gotta go find someone.

That's terrible...going out for an epic day on the snow, and turning it into an epic loss....I couldn't imagine being in that guy's shoes.

Jesus, that is horrible. Lot's of clues there others could have picked up to get a search and rescue going. Unfortunately for the couple, they were relying on others to realize they were in trouble. Their biggest mistake was not letting someone know when they were due back from their trip and where they were going. Either for the day or the weekend. That surely would have mobilized a S&R effort much sooner. Sucks.

RIP.
