Avalanche Canada says a skier who was caught in a snowslide on Friday in Banff National Park has died from her injuries.
STARS Air Ambulance had said the 32-year old woman was flown to a Calgary hospital in life-threatening condition.
She has been identified by her partner, Adam Campbell, as Canmore doctor Laura Kosakoski. In an online report, Avalanche Canada said three skiers were on a south-facing slope of Mount Hector, north of Lake Louise, when the slide occurred.
They said a slab avalanche was triggered and ran for about 550 metres.
Campbell said Kosakoski was buried by the debris before he and his friend were able to dig her out.
