The two victims are Manuel Sinez, of City Belle, and Geronimo Regina, of Lobos; Young people traveled in a group to ski on different mountains
Two Argentine nationals died in an avalanche outside the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort ski center, about 300 kilometers from Calgary, Canada. The tragic event occurred last Thursday, when the group of snowboarders was surprised by the snowfall, but the details were known in the past few hours.
As reported in the local media, a group of six friends traveled to Canada on a ski trip home in a car. On his visit to a restricted area – according to a reconstruction of the Vancouver Sun – for Kicking Horse, three young men were caught off guard by an avalanche as they got off the track.
The snow slid for more than 100 metres, burying them and ending the lives of Manuel Sainz, of City Bell, and Geronimo Regina, of Lobos. Jose Alonso, of Tres Arroyos, survived after being rescued by a German skier and remains hospitalized at the Calgary Clinic. The other three friends were unharmed because the avalanche did not catch them.
