Search and Rescue crews were called out to respond to a potential avalanche burial near Fernie.
Three skiers were touring in the area of Cornice Bowl Sunday when a slide caught the first skier heading down from the ridge.
Unable to make contact, and knowing they would lose cell coverage once they dropped in, the remaining two skiers called Search and Rescue.
Two avalanche technicians responded by helicopter to find that the affected skier had slid over 200 metres, but was uninjured and had not been buried.
The three skiers were able to make their way out on their own.
