German Heli-skier killed in B.C. avalanche

Caught in an avalanche north of Revelstoke, a German heli-skier has been killed.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky says the morning slide occurred in the backcountry and buried the heli-skier in as much as three metres of snow.

Bystanders dug out the man who received medical treatment at the scene, but Grabinsky says he died from his injuries.

Grabinsky says the coroner is now investigating the incident.

The unidentified man is the ninth person to die in an avalanche in Alberta and British Columbia this year.

Those who have died this month include snowmobilers, backcountry skiers, hikers and snowshoers, and even a father and son who were buried while tobogganing.
