A ski resort in the South Okanagan has temporarily closed following a "terrible accident" that left one person dead.
According to a statement from the resort, a member of the Baldy family died in the accident on Friday. Authorities are working with all those who were connected to the incident.
"We are all devastated," wrote the resort. "The intense emotions we feel are beyond comprehension. We cannot begin to grasp the overwhelming pain and sorrow the family is going through right now. We know there are no words to comfort them."
"Everyone at Baldy is working diligently with the authorities on this situation, following their directions and complying with their requests."
The resort is expected to reopen on Sunday once police have time to investigate.
