Skier dies after being caught in avalanche

BY , Jan 14, 2020 2:21 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

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.
