2 Danish skiers killed in avalanche in France

29 January 2014, 09:14

Paris -  Police say two Danish skiers perished in an avalanche while skiing in the French Alps.

The bodies of the two Danes, brothers aged 41 and 45, were found on Monday under three to five meters of snow in an off-piste area of the Alpe d'Huez ski resort, said Benjamin Valla, an official with the French mountain rescue police.

The brothers had been seasonal workers at the ski resort.

They had been skiing on Sunday and were reported missing by friends when they hadn't returned by Monday morning, Valla said.

Each year between 30 and 50 people die in avalanches in the French Alps, according to Valla.
