Ten skiers survive night in B.C. backcountry

A group of 10 skiers from Washington state who inadvertently ventured into British Columbia’s backcountry kept themselves warm by starting a fire and huddling together until help arrived, the RCMP said.

The skiers were at Red Mountain Resort, near Rossland in southeastern B.C., on Sunday when they set off to explore a new area of Grey Mountain, said Corporal Dave Johnson. They were reported missing by family members when they did not return as expected.
