A 37 year old snow boarder has been killed yesterday afternoon by an avalanche at St Veran in the Queyras massive. The alert was given in the late afternoon when the man failed to return to resort. The victim was found partially buried at 20h00 by rescue workers. He was skiing on an off piste on the Pic de Chateaurenard.
