BLEWETT, B.C. — A Salt Lake City woman was reported killed during a skiing trip in Calgary, Alberta, after an avalanche was triggered Wednesday morning.

The Ottoway Sun reported that Katie Aring, a 32-year-old shoe designer who grew up in Ohio but most recently lived in Salt Lake City, and Ryan Keene, 31, of London, England, were waiting with their group to be picked up by helicopter when the slide was triggered, killing them both. The other members of their group suffered minor injuries.
