Two Spanish skiers killed in avalanche in French Pyrenees

An avalanche in the French Pyrenees killed two skiers while three managed to extract themselves from the snow.

According to the television channel, the avalanche hit near the town of Aranyout (department of the Upper Pyrenees) on the border between France and Spain.

The two skiers were part of a group of four Spanish tourists who were doing backcountry skiing in an off-piste area in Aragnouet on Saturday.

About two hours later, the two buried skiers were found with one dead and the other "in absolute urgency". Their guide escaped unharmed and was questioned by police on Friday evening.
