"The victim was found 24 hours later under 1.5 metres of snow at the leading edge of the avalanche’s path, by crews who had been searching since dawn.
.....An RCMP spokesman says the victim was well prepared and came with all the necessary equipment."
poor article - something doesn't add up. it does not take 24hrs to conduct a beacon search.
"Last week, the Canadian Avalanche Centre issued a special warning to backcountry enthusiasts about the considerable risk in the area."
on the avy scale 'considerable' has some risk, but it can be mitigated with good decisions. you can still go play on a 'considerable' day, just gotta be smart/cautious out there.
sad for sure. snowmobiles are dangerous.
