A local man has died in an avalanche just outside Castlegar.
The 45 year old snowmobiler was reported overdue Monday. His machine was seen half-submerged in the debris field in the College Creek Road area late last night but he was not found.
Search crews moved in first thing today.
Here’s RCMP Cpl Dan Moskaluk.
No name has been officially released but police say he was an experienced sledder.
