Avalanche kills 2, more missing
An avalanche struck an unsanctioned snowmobile rally in Canada's Rocky Mountians Saturday killing at least two, police said.
Rescuers sent helicopters over remote Boulder Mountain at daybreak Sunday to determine if conditions were safe for a full-scale ground search after operations were halted overnight when darkness fell, according to MSNBC.
Police also conducted a door-to-door search of housing in an attempt to get a handle on the number of those still missing, according to The New York Times.
30 people were injured, including one in critical condition and one in serious condition.
