A Whitehorse woman died in a snowmobiling accident near the United States border north of Skagway on Sunday.
The 32-year-old snowmobiler fell several feet after cresting a small hill near the Fraser Customs station just after 3:30 p.m., according to an RCMP news release.
The woman, whose name has not been released, had died by the time emergency services arrived at the scene.
She was carrying a passenger but police were not available to comment on the passager’s condition by press time.
The driver was wearing an helmet and alcohol is not believed to be a factor, said the release.
The BC Coroner Service and the Carcross and Atlin RCMP detachments are investigating the incident.
