A 42-year-old man of squamble, BC, died in Thursday night in a lavish neighborhood near Pemberton.
Whistler RCPs say the victim was recovering Friday around an area known as Pebble Creek. Weather and lack of light delayed recovery.
Sgt. Rob Noton says the man was with a group of skiers, who are well-prepared for back country conditions and have avalanche beacons.
"The group was right to be stretched, and it only shows you that there is a huge risk in the back country no matter how much equipment you have," he said.
"There is nothing to indicate that this group did something wrong actually, they were properly equipped, but it's just one of the bad things that happens."

On Thursday, Avalante Canada issued an extreme avalanche for the area after a storm brought dozens of snow centimeters.
After the victim was caught in the slide around mid-afternoon, other members could find him and avoid him. But he cannot revive.
"Unfortunately, he cited his injuries," Nappton said.

Some members of the group stay in the back country overnight. Others disappear to get help. Nton says there is a cabin in the area where those who are scared are able to take shelter.
Noton says the person's family is notified of the death and the BC Corona's service is investigating.
