Barb McLintock says there was a large avalanche yesterday afternoon in an area where a group of people were snowmobiling. She says two coroners have been dispatched from Prince George, BC, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating.

Avalanche Canada says the avalanche appears to be human triggered but did not elaborate. The organisation says rain and snow in the last few days followed by clearing and cooling on yesterday may have produced stresses in the snowpack.

McBride is about 210 kilometres southeast of Prince George.
