An avalanche killed two skiers yesterday at the Russian mountain resort used for the Sochi Winter Olympics the day after it opened to the public, the resort said.
Six skiers were on the middle section of the Labirint run when the avalanche struck, the Roza Khutor resort said. The snow buried two women, and rescuers who dug them out were unable to save them, it said.
The four other skiers escaped unharmed.
