KELOWNA, B.C. — The British Columbia coroner says an Alberta woman fell to her death while snowboarding in an out-of-bounds area near the Fernie Alpine Resort.
The coroner says 20-year-old Alexa Hugh of De Winton, Alta., was with a friend last Sunday when they entered a permanently closed area outside of the resort in B.C.'s East Kootenay region.
Hugh fell more than 100 metres down a steep slope.
The woman was taken to hospital, but couldn't be resuscitated.
Both the coroners' service and the RCMP are investigating the death.
