Lethbridge Man Survives South-East B.C. Avalanche

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:  A Lethbridge man was sent to Fernie hospital Sunday with non-life threatening injuries after he was buried in a class two avalanche.

 

A group of five skiers were in the back-country about 20 kilometres east of Sparwood in the Corbin recreation area, near the Coal Mountain Teck mine, when they triggered an avalanche.

 

The four other members of the group helped dig-out the buried skier. Nearby snowmobilers then helped get the injured man to an ambulance where he was transported to hospital with hypothermia and a broken arm.

 

An Elk Valley RCMP officer told Country 95 News that the skier was lucky to be alive.  The officer noted all the members of the ski party had avalanche training.

 

The injured man's identity has not been released but, he is expected to make a full recovery.
