The Nelson Police Board says the men were struck while on snowmobiles
One police officer has been killed and a second has been critically in an avalanche near Kaslo in southeastern B.C., the Nelson Police board says.
The board says the two officers were struck by the avalanche while on snowmobiles.
Avalanche Canada warned Sunday that B.C.’s snowpack is unusually weak this year and will be more vulnerable to avalanches.
