An avalanche near Marias Pass, Mont., killed one man and injured another on Saturday.
The men were riding snow bikes in a drainage area off Skyland Road when the avalanche was triggered.
Rescue teams from the Flathead County Sheriff's Office, the Glacier County Sheriff's Office, Glacier County Search and Rescue and North Valley Search and Rescue combined their efforts in search of the victim. The body was recovered about 3:45 p.m. MST (5:45 p.m. EST).
Injuries to the second man were minor.
The death on Saturday marks the third by avalanche this month in northwestern Montana. There have been seven avalanche fatalities in Montana this winter.
"The foothills to the west of the avalanche site recorded up to 6 inches of snow on Saturday evening," said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.
Fresh snow on top of existing snow increases the risk of avalanches.
