WHISTLER, B.C. - The body of a 29-year-old Ontario man has been found at a ski resort in British Columbia.
Police say the man was snowboarding on Whistler Mountain with a group when he got separated at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers say the man's friends waited at a ski lift and looked around for him, but were unsuccessful and eventually reported him missing.
A search was executed by ground and air, and the man was found at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in an in-bounds area.
Police say the man was showing no signs of life, and died despite efforts from search and rescue crews and a doctor on scene.
The BC Coroners Service says it is early in the investigation, but the death does not appear to be suspicious.
