Missing American believed to be victims of Avalanche

Lake Louise, Alberta – RCMP in Lake Louise, along with Parks Canada are working to locate two missing snowshoers who are believed to have been caught in an avalanche north of Lake Louise.


On March 14, RCMP were notified by staff of a hotel that two registered guests from Boston, MA, USA, had not checked out of their accommodations in Field, B.C. RCMP later located the vehicle that had been rented by the missing parties at a trail head north of Lake Louise on Highway 93, near an area that had recently experienced an avalanche.

Search efforts are being led by Parks Canada and an update will be provided when the recovery operation is complete. Efforts to access the area are being hindered by the weather and the risk of further avalanches.

The families of the missing people have been notified by RCMP and the identities will not be released.
