Description
A party of three skiers were on the flank of Phalanx Mountain above Blackcomb Glacier/Creek. At approximately 2200m two were caught in what is reported as a wind slab that was approximately 50cm thick and 60-80m wide. The slide ran 650m to approximately 1700m and both subjects were fully buried. One person was recovered near the toe of the slide with injuries. The second was found higher in the path but did not survive.
