Courmayeur avalanche: At least one young Brit skier among three dead in Italy

Baku, February 5, AZERTAC

At least one young Brit is among three skiers killed after an avalanche in Italy - as a fourth remains missing.

According to the Mirror, two of the skiers have been described as English, while the other two are French, according to reports.

The bodies of the three tragic freeriders were found under an avalanche in the Canale degli Spagnoli, Val Veny, this morning.

Rescuers tracked them in a helicopter after they went missing yesterday in Courmayeur, Valle d'Aosta. Video footage shows the weather conditions in the area.

The alarm was raised by friends of the Brit skiers at around midday on Sunday, torino.repubblica.it reports.

Reports said it was supposed to be the final day of the trip for the two Brit tourists.

The Foreign Office says a British man is missing after an avalanche in Valle d'Aosta.

The two pairs of skiers were reportedly crossing by chance in an area where rescuers could later not go by foot because the avalanche was so high.
