French Alps shows an avalanche site in an off-piste area
Lyon - Arab Today

A Dutch snowboarder and a skier have been killed and two other people are missing after a series of avalanches in the French Alps following heavy snowfall, local officials said on Wednesday.
The group of three Dutch snowboarders in their twenties were off-piste on Tuesday when they were swept away in the Valfrejus resort, mountain rescue services from the area said in a statement.
One of them has been confirmed dead while the two others are still missing
“Initial information suggests the three people did not have detection equipment,” it said, referring to systems that allow rescuers to locate skiers stuck beneath the surface.
A helicopter and sniffer dogs were deployed on Wednesday morning to try to find the two missing people.
In a separate incident near the Vars and Risoul resorts, a skier was killed on Tuesday in an avalanche, local officials confirmed without giving further details.
Heavy snowfall in recent days have made off-piste areas particularly treacherous, with the avalanche risk evaluated at four on a scale of five by the French weather office on Tuesday.
A major avalanche also swept over a piste in the high-altitude resort of Tignes, sending people fleeing for safety. No-one was hurt, though dozens were left shocked by the experience.
