A male snowboarder has been found dead on Whistler Mountain.

Authorities say the snowboarder, who has not been identified, was reported missing on Tuesday evening when he failed to show up at the end of the day in the village.

A search for him was resumed on Wednesday and his body was found. 

"No avalanche, nothing suspicious," said Barb McLintock, a spokesperson for the B.C. Coroners Service. "[It] would appear to be a tragic accident although as I say everything is still very preliminary."
