Snowmobiler, 27, dies after going missing near Revelstoke

A tragic incident claimed the life of a snowmobiler near Revelstoke over the weekend.

It was around 5:40 pm Saturday that the Revelstoke RCMP was notified about the missing man on Boulder Mountain.

According to police, the 27-year-old from Quebec was snowmobiling with a group when he became separated.

“He had tried to radio to his group his location,” explained an RCMP release. “However, not having GPS or satellite communication, he could not be immediately located.”

Revelstoke Search and Rescue was alerted to the situation and quickly deployed to the area to try and find the missing man.

They later found him in a remote and steep area called Toilet Bowl, but he was in serious medical distress.

“Sadly, while the man was being rapidly extracted from the location, his condition worsened and he succumbed to his injuries,” the police release noted.

His death is not considered suspicious and the Revelstoke RCMP is working alongside the BC Coroners Service to investigate the fatal incident.
