A HUGE avalanche in the area of McBride, in the region of Vancouver, western Canada claimed the lives of at least five snowmobilers on January 29 according to local reports and the BBC.

The official body, Avalanche Canada has said that the tragedy occurred due to what it referred to as ‘human activity’ and is was so large that it struck three separate groups who were enjoying riding their snowmobiles.

It appears that the carnage could have been greater if it had not been for the fact that a search and rescue team was serendipitously operating in the area and was able to assist but is feared that there is every likelihood of further avalanches due to adverse weather conditions.
