Three men sent to hospital after avalanche
Three men are being taken to hospital after they were caught in an avalanche on Tuesday afternoon.
On Feb. 3, at 2 p.m., the Golden RCMP received a report of an avalanche near the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Three men in their early 20s, all from Saskatchewan, were apparently skiing out-of-bounds near Terminator 2 when they allegedly caused and were subsequently caught in the avalanche.
One of the men was able to call 911 and the Safety Team from the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort was able to quickly locate them. Two of the men have suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries while the third is apparently uninjured.
Search and Rescue was activated and has since extracted the three men from the area. They are being taken to hospital for treatment.
