The bodies of five skiers were located near a glacier in Kokanee Glacier Park, 30 miles north of Nelson, and the search was to continue yesterday for a sixth missing person, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. The party of six was reported overdue returning from a mountain cabin on Friday.
At least two other skiers died on Saturday afternoon in an avalanche near Mount Alwin, northwest of New Denver, which is 40 miles north of Nelson. The two were part of a skiing expedition, police said. Nelson is 40 miles north of the US-Canada border and about 450 miles north-west of Vancouver - AP, Kaslo, British Columbia (AP)
