Two people are dead and two more are hurt in separate avalanches in British Columbia's backcountry.

Heli-skiing operator CMH Nomads says two guests and a guide were caught in an avalanche near Revelstoke on Monday, and both guests were unresponsive when they were pulled from the snow.

B.C. Emergency Health Services says in a statement it was called Monday afternoon following an avalanche in the Cherryville area east of Vernon, B.C., where one person was taken to hospital.

More coming.
