5 bodies recovered from British Columbia snow slide

Colwell said the hikers were probably traversing the cornice, a build up of snow and ice that creates an overhang that is extremely risky to traverse or pass beneath.

He said about 30 friends and family members of the five hikers were in Squamish.

"Our initial reaction was vast sadness because the Korean-Canadian community is very close-knit".

Yoon said: "I'm uncomfortable and very sad and I hope they are rescued".

But Ferries says no one was on the summit when he arrived and all he saw were some tracks leading to the ledge, which looked like it had broken off.

Weather conditions in the area, north of Vancouver, have been harsh and unstable since Friday.

Mr Colwell said the group had apparently stepped out onto a ledge of unsupported snow, without realising it, and it collapsed under them. "Unfortunately you can't see the edge of the mountain face below it".

Vancouver's Korean-Canadian community is mourning after the bodies of five hikers were recovered from the north face of Mount Harvey.

A South Korean national was among five climbers who were killed in a recent small avalanche on a mountain near Vancouver, Canada, Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.

Ferries went to his vehicle and called for help.

"They didn't do anything wrong", he said.

At least 60 search and rescue members volunteered their time to search with dogs for those who had fallen, Buhr said.

Buhr said recovery teams had to ensure it was safe to go into the mountains because of the potential for avalanches and they worked hard to retrieve the bodies on Sunday so families did not have to wait one more night.
