El motonieve que murió en Colorado es el 28 ° muerto en avalanchas en los EE. UU. Esta temporada.

El cuerpo de un motonieve desaparecido cerca de Rand, Colorado ha sido encontrado, según el Centro de información de avalanchas de Colorado. El sombrío descubrimiento marcó la 28a muerte por avalancha esta temporada.

Según funcionarios, two snowmobilers were caught by a large avalanche near Ruby Mountain on Tuesday. The accident occurred on a slope at around 11,400 feet and the avalanche was about three quarters of a mile wide and 400 feet high.
One rider was buried in two feet in the snow and died while the other person was not injured, de acuerdo a CAIC.
The riders were with four other snowmobilers at the time, but the man who died was standing on a steep slope away from his snowmobile when the avalanche occurred. He was swept downhill and his body was found Wednesday afternoon, CAIC reported.
    The name of the avalanche victim was not released.
      Also this week, a snowmobiler was buried and killed in an avalanche in the Squaw Creek Drainage area southeast of Alpine, Wyoming on Wednesday, according to CAIC, which keeps a running tally of avalanche deaths across the country.
      An avalanche occurs when a layer of snow collapses and travels downhill rapidly. Even though avalanches can form anytime if the right conditions are present, there is typically a sharp increase in avalanche deaths during the months of January and February. Worldwide, an average of 150 people are killed each year in avalanches, with roughly 27 of them in the US.
