The BC Coroner's Service has identified him as Jason Chad Westbury of Revelstoke.
The RCMP say he was with two other backcountry skiers when the slide came down Sunday afternoon.
His friends were able to dig him out and applied CPR, but by the time a Parks Canada team arrived by helicopter, Westbury had died.
The other skiers were not hurt and were removed from the area by helicopter.
It was the second avalanche death in B.C. in two days after a snowmobiler was killed in a slide west of Kimberley on Saturday.
