Skier from Seattle killed in Mount Shuksan avalanche

A skier from Seattle was killed in an avalanche Wednesday on Mount Shuksan in the North Cascades National Park.

Two Seattle men were ascending the north face of the mountain this morning when they were hit by an avalanche consisting mostly of snow, Park Ranger Rosemary Seifried said. One skier was swept away and the other, who wasn’t injured, was able to call 911 from his cellphone.

Two climbing rangers located the man’s body Wednesday afternoon, but because of the potential for additional snow slides, crews won’t be able to recover the body until Thursday. It was clear from the nature of the fall, which was more than 2,000 feet, that the skier did not survive, Seifried said.
