Default Death on North Shore Mountain

I have only heard that there was a death on the north shore mountains, news on it here in Victoria is scarce. How did it happen?

There is a story about a young couple that strayed out of bounds at Cypress Bowl.

I haven't seen anything about a death though. I'll let you know if I hear of anything.

I didn't get the details of how it happened, but I think it was a party of 5 out snowshoeing on Grouse and one of them somehow ended up going over a 150M cliff

They showed the rescue site on the news - lots of bloodstained snow
