RCMP say conservation officers found a man's body on Saturday at Grizzly Creek Trail, southwest of Calgary.
RCMP Const. John Spaans says the hiker had proper clothing and a suitable amount of equipment, but may have become exhausted by waist-deep snow.
The victim was a southern Alberta resident who was in his 40s, but his name has not been released.
Calgary's medical examiner is involved in the investigation. (CHQR)
